Emerging infectious diseases – as a result of ecological, anthropogenic or evolutionary change – continue to be a major challenge. As a scientific community, we focus most of our attention on the fundamental ecological and evolutionary processes that drive infectious diseases, yet part of the excitement of our research is the potential to apply our research to programs that may mitigate the effects of both ongoing and emerging diseases in human, wildlife and domestic animal populations.

Climate variability and climate change are impacting agriculture and global food security in every part of the world. In particular, the productivity of subsistence farming, on which millions of small holder farmers depend upon for their livelihoods, is significantly impacted by weather and climate. The increasing frequency and magnitude of extreme weather events, such as floods, droughts, heat waves etc., pose potentially disastrous consequences for agriculture and food security, especially in the rain fed areas of developing countries.
