In the last decade the UK farming industry has been hit by the invasion of two new vector-bourne dieseases of animals, bluetongue and Schmallenberg.
Bluetongue and Schmallenberg are viral diseases, transmitted by Culicoides biting midges. A climate-driven model shows that our warming climate led to an increase in the risk of such invasions in the 1990s. A second, network-based transmission model shows that warming temperatures will increase the scale of such outbreaks in the future.
