Abstract

The most recent advances in rabies epidemiology in various wildlife and domestic reservoirs are presented, especially in foxes, bats and dogs. Rabies epidemiology in the dog reservoir is directly associated to dog ecology which needs to be better understood in order to implement appropriate rabies control measures in the dog population. The progress of molecular biology, especially the development of the Polymerase Chain Reaction technique offers many interesting possibilities in epidemiological investigations.
