Dear Ben,

Please send a copy of your paper titled "
New approaches to aquatic and terrestrial animal surveillance: The
potential for people and technology to transform epidemiology".
We are looking to PostgeSQL/PostGIS solutions.

I will ask my colleagues to cite your work.

You can send a copy to drshishaozhong at gmail.com.
