A Tribute to Nick Short

It is with extreme sadness that we share the news that one of WikiVet’s founders, Nick Short, has passed away.

Nick was the driving force behind WikiVet and all that it stood for, and it is thanks to his vision, innovative approach and tireless enthusiasm and belief, that WikiVet is available as a free resource to veterinary professionals around the world today. Nick’s dedication and passion for veterinary education were truly inspirational and his very many friends, colleagues and students across the world have lost a true gem. He was an exceptional human being: gentle, good-natured, charming, generous and kind: he has left many legacies which will ensure that he will be remembered for many years.

Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this heartbreaking time. A book of remembrance has been set up for anyone that would like to leave a message of condolence for Nick and his family have asked that anyone who wishes to do so make a donation to BipolarUK, a charity that was close to Nick’s heart.

Introduction

Listeria monocytogenes (MarcoTolo 2006, Wikimedia commons)

Listeria monocytogenes is one of the six species belonging to the genus Listeria.

Outbreaks of listeriosis are caused by L. monocytogenes. The outbreaks are seasonal and linked to silage feeding.

Listeria monocytogenes replicates in poor quality silage, where the pH exceeds 5.5.

Animals are highly susceptible during pregnancy due to lowered cell-mediated immunity.
