Wildlife diseases threaten Europe´s biodiversity
Severe infectious diseases of wildlife are on the increase mainly due to the globalization of trade leading to increased mobility of
pathogens, including invasive alien species. These epidemics are a serious threat to biodiversity and result in the degradation of ecosystem functioning.
Several EU policies (wildlife trade, invasive species and animal health) and better coordination of measures among them could contribute to addressing the
problem and help reach the 2020 targets.
