Here we present a collection of articles published in Acta Veterinaria Scandinavica advancing our knowledge of wildlife research, ranging from diseases in reindeer to mountain goats to gulls to otters to moles. A real strength of the journal is our strong expertise in Artic and Scandinavian wild animals.
We bring together articles covering some of the following topics:
· New knowledge on wild boars, such as seroprevalence studies on Brucella, Salmonella, Yersinia, Toxoplasma gondii and research on the population dynamics and puberty of the wild boar.
· Reviews on the overall health of Artic wildlife and on Artic rabies.
· Investigations into the decline of seabird and brown hare populations.
· Reports on the detection of viruses such as the isolation of an avian influenza virus in Norway for the first time, and the second case in Finland of European bat lyssavirus type2 in a Daubenton’s bat.
· Papers highlighting concerns for zoonotic pathogen transmission, including insights into the significance of red foxes in the epidemiology of leptospirosis.
· Characterisation of the gastrointestinal parasites in wild red deer
· Surveys on Aleutian mink disease virus in Canada
We invite you to contribute to this collection by submitting original research or reviews on topics relating to wildlife diseases.
