The contribution of wild mammals to the epidemiology of tuberculosis (Mycobacterium bovis) in New Zealand

The objective of these studies was twofold. The primary aim was to gain a better understanding of the role of free-living mammalian species, other than possums, in the epidemiology of wildlife tuberculosis in New Zealand. The other objective was to continue the operation of the Castlepoint longitudinal study so that hypotheses regarding the epidemiology of M. bovis infection in possums could be further refined and clarified.
