We have created a Special Issue in the journal Diversity in order to integrate the multiple disciplines involved in wildlife pathogen research. Viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoans, and helminths are important components of wildlife diversity even though they are frequently not considered as such. Knowing the diversity of these pathogens is important for better understanding their role in nature, their host range, and the level of threat they might represent to wild and domestic animals as well as humans.
This collection of research articles, short communications, and literature reviews will highlight studies on the diversity, biology, diagnosis, ecology, and evolution of pathogens that infect wild vertebrates. We also welcome studies investigating vectors involved in the transmission of pathogens circulating in enzootic and zoonotic cycles. Many thanks for your interest in contributing to this Special Issue.

Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers).
