REMOVE_DISEASE is a research project on the conservation and restoration of degraded insular biodiversity.
It aims at exploring the impacts of the removal of introduced mammals on the dynamics of infectious diseases in seabirds across islands of the Southern Ocean.
The project runs from April 1st 2022 until March 31st 2025.
In the current context of global change, many seabird populations are threatened.
Infectious diseases and introduced species can interact to increase threats to seabirds on islands.
Understanding those interactions is important for the conservation and restoration of degraded insular biodiversity.
The project is funded following the BiodivRestore call of Biodiversa and Water JPW. The booklet presenting the selected projects is now accessible.
