African Swine Fever in Wild Boar Ecology and Biosecurity (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


This paper provides a fact-based overview of African swine fever (ASF) ecology in the Northern and Eastern European populations of wild boar, and briefly describes a range of practical management and biosecurity measures that can help stockholders to address the problem in a coherent, collaborative and comprehensive way.

Currently, the disease is endemic in wild boar populations in several countries and continues to expand its range in Europe, causing serious concern. Controlling this sylvatic epidemic of ASF is a challenging task for veterinary authorities, given the complexity of the disease epidemiology, the lack of previous experience, the unprecedented geographical scope of the problem, and its transboundary and multi-sectoral nature.

In order to reduce risks and prevent the negative implications of the now widespread presence of ASF in the ecosystems of northern and eastern Europe, this publication calls for close and continuous cross-sectoral collaboration among veterinary authorities, forestry and wildlife management agencies, nature conservation and hunting bodies, organizations, communities and clubs.

Founded in 1945, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) leads international efforts to defeat hunger. Serving both developed and developing countries, FAO provides a neutral forum where all nations meet as equals to negotiate agreements and debate policy. The Organization publishes authoritative publications on agriculture, fisheries, forestry and nutrition.
