TOPIC “Emerging Wildlife Diseases.” One of the most worrisome developments in animal conservation is the drastic increase in diseases that affect native wildlife populations. Known as emerging pathogens, these diseases present a considerable challenge to wildlife biologists, since these diseases can rapidly decimate populations of native wildlife species, even when their habitats have been well protected. PRESENTER Richard (Rich) A. Seigel is a Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Towson University in Maryland.
