What it takes to be a reservoir host

BELGIAN JOURNAL OF ZOOLOGY, 127(S1):85-90.

The majority of parasitic infections of man are of zoonotic origin. In a conceptual framework for the incrimination of mammalian reservoir hosts, these are defined as being essential to the maintenance of parasite suprapopulations. A series of guidelines are given for the accumulation of the relevant information. It is proposed that mammal ecologists can contribute significantly to the understanding of medically important zoonoses.
