Submission status
Submission deadline

Zoonotic diseases, or zoonoses, are various kinds of illnesses caused by pathogens that jumped from non-human animals to humans. Zoonoses can be highly infectious and deadly, representing a serious public health problem around the world, disrupting individual well-being and societies as a whole. They may become even more of a threat under future climate scenarios and if habitat loss is not halted, increasing the chances of contact between humans and wildlife.

This Collection welcomes studies providing the latest insights on zoonotic disease emergence and spread, pathogen life cycles, development of new treatments and vaccines, preventive healthcare, and many other aspects from a variety of fields.
