Human-bovine ecosystems: reflections on zoonoses in the tropics

Human-bovine ecosystems: reflections on zoonoses in the tropics

Diseases of cattle in the tropics Economic and zoonotic relevance Current Topics in Veterinary Medicine and Animal Science, Vol 6: 39-51

The role of bovine-human interactions in the maintenance of zoonoses is reviewed with special reference to those husbandry systems in the tropics where traditional cattle husbandry methods and other practices appear to favour the transmission of various diseases common to man and cattle, such as babesiosis and African trypanosomiasis.
