A comprehensive and well thought out guide to zoonoses. Hendra virus infection is topical at the moment with several separate outbreaks in Australia in 2011. Will put this link up for my students to increase their knowledge on zoonoses.

Being that I am interested in all types of infectious diseases this tutorial really caught my attention. This site was filled with an abundance of information with all types of infectious diseases that can result from animal to human transmission or disease that can be shared by both. I spent several hours going through each topic listed and the details behind the diseases that can passed humans in various forms of transmission. I liked how this tutorial divided the information between human and animals if it was a disease that could be shared by both, and I liked how this tutorial also provided the same information via transmission from animal to human and the manifestations that accompany that. I thought this site was extremely thorough and meticulous to cover the abundance of Zoonotic diseases and each topic responded to how each infection is spread, where these diseases can be found, who it can spread to, what it does, what it looks like under a microscope, what it looks like during the actual disease process, vaccinations (if possible), in addition to extra references for further information. In addition this site added relevant and very descriptive pictures which showed various clinical manifestations of the disease, complications from prolonged or undiagnosed infections, and pictures of the disease or pathogen itself. These pictures benefited my learning by adding to the description and understanding surrounding each of the many diseases/complications. I also found information that would have been useful for in my classes relating to the disease Bordetella Bronchiseptica, which produces whooping cough. This disease was stated to be isolated increasingly from immunocompromised hosts with respiratory tract infections, which is beneficial knowledge I can use in the clinical field because I do work with elders. In conclusion, I thought this site was an excellent resource for so many diseases. I was even able to relate something I had learned from this site to class, which shows just how resourceful and applicable this site is to nursing and medicine. I would highly recommend this site to anyone who enjoys micro or any subject that is science related. I think it is also a positive site for animal owner who may be curious about the health and safety of their family, and it was pretty user friendly. The tutorial guided you through each topic and gave you information on how to return to the previous or home page. My only concern was that this tutorial has SO much information that it makes it difficult to review the entire site. Overall, however; I felt that since this site has so many uses and such an abundance of information, it is a reference I am sure to refer back to!
