The unit tackles the ecology and epidemiology of animal diseases at different scales by developing its research activities around three main questions. What are the conditions and determinants of pathogen emergence: real emergence, expansion of a pathogen’s geographic area or host spectrum? What are the conditions and determinants of the maintenance of a pathogen and of a disease becoming endemic: persistence in an ecosystem or a commercial sector? What are the conditions and determinants of disease epidemics (spread, epidemic, pandemic)?
