This paper states that changes in biodiversity allow for the emergence of new
diseases. Losses in biodiversity reduce the resilience of ecosystems.

This document contains a synopsis of changing disease patterns and suggests
a multidisciplinary approach to understand the impacts of climate variability.
Remote sensing is a tool recommended for integration of ecosystems
information with health and other social outcomes. Policies can then be
developed to meet the needs of society.
