This is a list of texts on One Health (and related topics) that I have found especially helpful and interesting.  There are two sections listed below:

Section 1 covers texts specifically about One Health, conservation medicine, biodiversity & health, or transdisciplinary clinical practice.

Section 2 includes texts related to One Health but reflect my specific interests (as a human infectious disease clinician working in the upper Midwest of the United States).

What resources would you recommend?  Please let me know of any books you’ve found useful that I should add to my list.  Or, do you know of any texts currently in press?  Please give me a heads-up.
