Zoonotic infections are important sources of human disease. The great majority of emerging infections identified to date (including HIV, Ebola virus, severe acute respiratory syndrome [SARS], Nipah virus, and enteropathogenic ) are zoonotic ( ). These diseases originate as natural infections of other species that are given opportunities to cross the animal-human interface and come in contact with humans ( ). Wildlife constitutes a particularly important source ( ).
