The epidemiology of ricefield-associated diseases

, : The epidemiology of ricefield-associated diseases. Vector borne disease control in humans through rice agroecosystem management Proceedings of the Workshop on Research and Training Needs in the Field of Integrated Vector borne Disease Control in Riceland Agroecosystems of Developing Countries, 9-14 March 1987: 29-39

The basic concepts of epidemiology are introduced in the context of ricefield-associated diseases. A remarkably high proportion of tropical, especially parasitic, infections are associated with shallow water bodies. Among transient surface waters, ricefields are the world's predominant habitat. Zoonotic arboviruses, e.g. Japanese encephalitis virus, are transmitted by ricefield-breeding culicine mosquitoes; man is usually a dead-end host and pigs play a major role as amplifying hosts.
