Childs, M. L., Nova, N., Colvin, J., & Mordecai, E. A. (2019). Mosquito and primate ecology predict human risk of yellow fever virus spillover in Brazil. doi:10.1101/523704 https://doi.org/10.1101/523704

Many (re)emerging infectious diseases in humans arise from pathogen spillover from wildlife or livestock, and accurately predicting pathogen spillover is an important public health goal. In the Americas, yellow fever in humans primarily occurs following spillover from non-human primates via mosquito…

Chahad-Ehlers, S., Fushita, A. T., Lacorte, G. A., Assis, P. C. P. de, & Del Lama, S. N. (2018). Effects of habitat suitability for vectors, environmental factors and host characteristics on the spatial distribution of the diversity and prevalence of haemosporidians in waterbirds from three Brazilian wetlands. Parasites & Vectors, 11(1). doi:10.1186/s13071-018-2847-z https://doi.org/10.1186/s13071-018-2847-z

Background: Wetlands are ecosystems in which vectors of avian haemosporidians live and reproduce and where waterbirds join to breed in colonies. Brazil has wetlands at different latitudes, which enables testing the influence of the ecological factors on the prevalence and diversity of haemosporidian…
