Notably, the epizootic disease
has not been shown to be transmitted horizontally to healthy lobsters in laboratory experiments (Chistoserdov et al.
An increase in the susceptibility of the population to epizootic disease
mortality consequent of the increased abundance downbay evolved from 1985 to 1986 through a coincidence of climatic events into the largest epizootic event in the recorded history of Delaware Bay (Fig.
We investigated the risk for human infection after possible high exposure to an emerging vector-borne epizootic disease
through contact with infected animals and tissues or through insect bites.
Often, the disease agent has been present for some time prior to initial characterization, so that the population available to the investigator has already survived at least the initial phases of epizootic disease
