Wildlife populations of wide taxonomic breadth are declining globally at an astonishing rate. Habitat loss, environmental alteration and contamination, global movement of pathogens, excessive harvesting, and other predominantly anthropogenic factors are all contributory. In light of these declines, the need for improved and increased knowledge about health and disease states of both free-ranging and captive wildlife species is greater than ever.

We welcome experimental and clinical research submissions with a focus on wildlife and components of veterinary anatomic and/or clinical pathology for a special topic on Health and Disease in Free-Ranging and Captive Wildlife. Studies documenting disease, including infectious agents, nutritional disorders, toxicologic conditions, and neoplasia, as well as baseline health, microbiome, and clinicopathologic reference range studies are all of interest. This Research Topic will be open for manuscripts of all categories through the first quarter of 2019.


Keywords: Infectious disease, conservation, zoological medicine, neoplasia, exotic animals


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements.
