This is my experience as well. It is not only a great way to wrap up the year, but a perfect fit to protect human health and to safeguard the natural environment—air, water and land—upon which life depends.

We are working on posting a link to Dr. Ponsiri and Dr. Roman’s paper, but in the meantime, please take a look at some of the excellent references linked from the “Selected Readings” section of EPA’s Biodiversity and Human Health Web site:

For that reason, we must preserve our Eco-systems by improving better environmental science worldwide analyze study.

It is critical to get the word out about the impacts of certain human activities on the destruction of biodiversity and habitat. The emergence of new and re-emergence of older sicknesses is just one problem resulting from unchecked human activity. Nor is this a problem confined to developed countries. Some of the worst biodiversity destruction is taking place in poor, developing countries, and it can have national, regional, and international impacts. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

I have yet to hear back I’m fascinated by the science. Having an intuitive sense of the link, I see in this synopsis you mention the link with globalization and the increase in infectious disease. I’m also curious about the local scale conservation management approaches. Thank you for this posting.
