Investigation of the Climatic and Environmental Context of Hendra Virus Spillover Events 1994–2010

McFarlane, Rosemary; Becker, Niels; Field, Hume


Hendra virus is a recently emerged bat-borne zoonotic agent with high lethality in horses and humans in Australia. This is a rare disease and the determinants of bat to horse transmission, including the factors that bring these hosts together at critical times, are poorly understood. In this cross-disciplinary study climatic and vegetation primary productivity variables are compared for the dispersed and heterogenic 1994-2010 outbreak sites.
