Abstract

The objective of this bibliography is to compile references currently available on the disease status of domestic animals in the Pacific Islands region, with a view to highlighting knowledge gaps.

Research Statement

Research Background The Pacific Island countries and territories (PICTs) are reported to be free of the most serious infectious livestock diseases which are prevalent in other parts of the globe. Yet there is a lack of scientifically based evidence to confirm this animal health status. The objective of this bibliography is to compile references currently available on the disease status of domestic animals in the Pacific Islands region, with a view to highlighting knowledge gaps.
Research Contribution This book compiles references that have been published on diseases of domestic animals in the Pacific Islands region with a particular focus on data from the last 20 years (1992-2012). Relevant published papers were identified by a computerized literature search of two electronic databases (PubMed and Web of Knowledge). The latest reports on the animal health situation submitted by the PICTs to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) were accessed on the World Animal Health Information Database (WAHID) interface and included in this review. Additionally, paper searches of resources were undertaken at the library of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) in Fiji to retrieve any relevant grey literature for this bibliography.
Research Significance The study found retrieved literature on animal diseases in PICTs was scarce and no longer up to date. There is a need to improve the published knowledge on the current animal disease status in the region. This bibliography serves as a reference of current literature and identifies gaps in our current knowledge of animal diseases in PICTs.
