Case Studies in Ecohealth: Examining the Interaction between Animals and their Environment is primarily intended to be a student textbook, using a series of case studies to illustrate key concepts applicable to Eco Health, with a focus on taking an interdisciplinary approach to solving complex problems at the interface between animals and their environment.

  • Using case studies, the book will illustrate key concepts in ‘Eco Health’ allowing readers to better understand the strengths and challenges of taking an ‘Eco Health’ approach
  • Within the key themes addressed in the book, the reader will gain insight into how to approach complex problems at the animal-environment interface using a transdisciplinary approach
  • Access to the case studies presented in the book, along with supplementary material on line, will provide the reader with good examples of current and emerging issues for discussion in the class room or for field experience programs
