Phylogenetic and biogeographical traits predict unrecognized hosts of zoonotic leishmaniasis

Authors: Caroline K. Glidden , et al. Abstract The spatio-temporal distribution of leishmaniasis, a parasitic vector-borne zoonotic disease, is significantly impacted by land-use change and climate warming in the Americas. However, predicting and containing outbreaks is challenging as the zoonotic Leishmania system is highly complex: leishmaniasis (visceral, cutaneous and muco-cutaneous) in humans is caused by…
