Lecture: Avian Malaria in a Changing World
The effects of deforestation and climate change on health are diverse and becoming increasingly apparent. Ravinder Sehgal, who holds a PhD in cell biology from UCSF, presents research on the impact of human-induced change on the prevalence and diversity of avian malaria in birds from the tropics to the Arctic. Research shows that habitat degradation leads to altered patterns of malaria prevalence and disruptions in parasite diversity. Models using a multidisciplinary approach have been developed to help predict how deforestation and climate change will impact the spread of avian diseases.
