Abstract:

The recognition that human, animal, and ecological health are integrally interconnected has given rise to a growing recognition of the importance of crossing boundaries that have arisen in education, research, and practice. The value of the One Health approach is obvious to microbiologists who confront the frequent emergence of zoonotic diseases and the ecological factors that bring about changes in the distribution and activities of microorganisms across the globe. Microbes readily cross the boundaries of ecosystems—they have evolved to jump environmental barriers, including those that differentiate humans from other animal species ( ).
