Human-carnivore conflicts are a major conservation issue. As bears are expanding their range in Europe's human-modified landscapes, it is increasingly important to understand, prevent, and address human-bear conflicts and evaluate mitigation strategies in areas of historical coexistence. Based on verified claims, we assessed costs, patterns, and drivers of bear damages in the relict Apennine brown bear population in the Abruzzo Lazio and Molise National Park (PNALM), central Italy.

Enterotoxigenic (ETEC) is a common cause of diarrhea in children in low- and middle-income countries, and in travelers to these countries. ETEC is also an important cause of morbidity and premature mortality in piglets, calves, goat kids and lambs. The major virulence determinants of ETEC are enterotoxins and colonization factors, which enable the pathogen to colonize the small intestine and deliver enterotoxins, such as the heat-stable enterotoxins, STp and STh, to epithelial cells.

Dugbe orthonairovirus (DUGV) is a tick-borne arbovirus within the order . DUGV was first isolated in Nigeria, but virus isolations in ten further African countries indicate that DUGV is widespread throughout Africa. Humans can suffer from a mild febrile illness, hence, DUGV is classified as a biosafety level (BSL) 3 agent. Read More

Neonatal lamb and calf deaths are a major issue in UK agriculture. Consistent mortality rates over several decades, despite scientific advances, indicate that socioeconomic factors must also be understood and addressed for effective veterinary service delivery to improve lamb and calf survival. This qualitative study utilised semi-structured interviews with vets and farmers to explore the on-farm mechanisms and social context, with a particular focus on the role of the vet, to manage and reduce neonatal losses in beef calves and lambs on British farms.
