Species invasions can teach us about COVID-19
Species invasions can teach us about COVID-19
Invasions by alien insect and animal species have much in common with outbreaks of infectious diseases and can tell us a lot about how pandemics spread, according to new research. Biological invasions - where animals, insects, plants and microorganisms are transported around the globe by humans - are becoming more common and have a global annual cost of at least £118 billion.

Conservationists may be unintentionally spreading pathogens between threatened animal populations
Conservationists may be unintentionally spreading pathogens between threatened animal populations
Moving endangered species to new locations is often used as part of species conservation strategies, and can help to restore degraded ecosystems. But scientists say there is a high risk that these relocations are accidentally spreading diseases and parasites. We've seen that mixing different populations of mussels can allow widespread transmission of gonad-eating worms.
