Disease transmission between domestic and wild animals is crucial for agricultural economics and conservation. Livestock is the main source of income for nearly 3 billion people who live on less than 2 US$ a day, grazing nearly 1/3 of the world’s land surface.
For instance, in 2016, c.90% of Mongolian Saiga, Saiga tatarica mongolica died from PPR virus, caught from livestock. Alternatively, in various parts of Africa, Buffalo Syncerus caffer are an importance source of foot and mouth disease to livestock causing enormous loses for local resource-poor communities. Hence, studying disease is ecologically meaning and essential to bind wildlife conservation with economic security of communities.
Even though there has been a rise in studies addressing disease ecology, sparingly little is known from the wild. This is primarily as contemporary methods needed to study disease transmission are logistically and financially intensive and not field friendly. This has led to disease surveillance and management being rather reactive, globally.
Through this workshop we aim to share knowledge of a technique called FLOTAC method. This is a novel field friendly, cost-effective and logistically simple method to assess parasitic burdens and diversity in organisms’ faeces. This is the crucial first layer of information which if obtained proactively, can be used to understand nuances of disease transmission in a system and lead to timely interventions. This method is applicable both for the marine and terrestrial systems. Participants will be practically thought the FLOTAC method, identify parasites, analyse data and discuss value of such data.
