Scientific Articles of Note Q1 2015


A wide range of scientific papers have been published in the last quarter, with FMD, influenza and rabies receiving the greatest focus. However vector borne diseases in general, and the risks associated with climate change, are also covered. A couple of papers have covered the emergence and re-emergence of PPR in both Africa and Asia.

Where possible the articles have been hyperlinked to take you to the article on Science Direct. If you have membership then you will be able to read the entire article, otherwise you will access the abstract.
