Table 1 Data extracted from abstracts

From: Identifying climate-sensitive infectious diseases in animals and humans in Northern regions

VariableExplanation
Publication year
 Exclusion of an abstract and reason for omission at this stageNot mentioning one of the selected potential CSIs; not studying animals or humans (only environment)
 Characterisation of CSIThe abstract supports that
Abiotic: Presence, spread, prevalence or persistence of the CSI is dependent on the ambient temperature, humidity, vegetation cover, surface water or other climate variable
Ecosystem: Climate-driven changes in ecosystems or habitats are a driver in the epidemiology of the CSI
Vectors and reservoirs: Spread or persistence is dependent on arthropod vectors, intermediate hosts and/or reservoir animals, which in turn are dependent on temperature or other climate variables for their geographical distribution, population density, persistence etc.
Opportunistic: Individuals under stress due to environmental and climate conditions are more easily infected with the CSI
The infection was classified as climate-sensitive
 Geographical areaCountry and/or continent
Focus on human and/or animal
 CSI in focus
  Category of CSITransmission routes
Arthropod vector-borne; Food, feed and water-borne; Soil and natural water-borne; Contact transmission; Wildlife as intermediate host, vector, amplifier or reservoir
