Table 1 Data extracted from abstracts

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

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
