The domestic animal/wildlife interface : issues for disease control, conservation, sustainable food production, and emerging diseases edited by E. Paul J. Gibbs and Bob H. Bokma, is the result of a conference and workshop series, Wildlife and Livestock, Disease and Sustainability: What Makes Sense? held 22-27 July 2001 in Pilanesberg National Park, South Africa. The volume includes much that is relevant to Okavango region planning, including: Wildife and Pastoral Society -- Shifting Paradigms in Disease Control, Relating National Veterinary Services to the Country's Livestock Industry -- Case Studies from Four Countries : Great Britain, Botswana, Peru and Vietnam, The Fencing Issue Relative to the Control of Foot-and-Mouth Disease, Serologic Survey of Selected Viral, Bacterial, and Priotozoal Agents in Captive and Free-Ranging Ungulates from Central Kenya, and Implications of Tuberculosis in African Wildife and Livestock. You can find the book in HOORC's Library, and more resources about livestock and the environment on the LEAD Livestock Environment and Development Virtual Centre.
