    Sebastian Funk
    Institute of Zoology, Zoological Society of London, London, United Kingdom
    PLoS ONE 8:e69951. 2013
    ..Implementing this more rigorous definition of an EID will require buy-in and enforcement from scientists, policy makers, peer reviewers and journal editors, but has the potential to improve resource allocation for global health. ..
  2. pmc Predicting human West Nile virus infections with mosquito surveillance data
    A Marm Kilpatrick
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, 1156 High Street, University of California Santa Cruz, CA 95064, USA
    Am J Epidemiol 178:829-35. 2013
    ..These results demonstrate that mosquito surveillance provides a valuable public health tool for assessing the risk of human arboviral infections, allocating limited public health resources, and justifying emergency control actions. ..
  3. pmc Drivers, dynamics, and control of emerging vector-borne zoonotic diseases
    A Marm Kilpatrick
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Santa Cruz, Santa Cruz, CA 95064, USA
    Lancet 380:1946-55. 2012
    ..We describe challenges inherent in the control of vector-borne zoonotic diseases and some emerging non-traditional strategies that could be effective in the long term...
  4. pmc Globalization, land use, and the invasion of West Nile virus
    A Marm Kilpatrick
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Santa Cruz, CA 95064, USA
    Science 334:323-7. 2011
    ..This research provides a framework for predicting and preventing the emergence of foreign vector-borne pathogens...
  5. doi The ecology and impact of chytridiomycosis: an emerging disease of amphibians
    A Marm Kilpatrick
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Santa Cruz, CA 95064, USA
    Trends Ecol Evol 25:109-18. 2010
    ..Chytridiomycosis is an archetypal emerging disease, with a broad host range and significant impacts on host populations and, as such, poses a crucial challenge for wildlife managers and an urgent conservation concern...
  6. pmc DNA vaccination of American robins (Turdus migratorius) against West Nile virus
    A Marm Kilpatrick
    Consortium for Conservation Medicine, New York, New York, USA
    Vector Borne Zoonotic Dis 10:377-80. 2010
    ..More broadly, if an orally effective formulation of this vaccine could be developed, new control strategies based on wildlife vaccination may be possible...
