Ecology and infectious disease


Ecology and infectious disease



Ecosystem change and ic health: a global perspective: 283-324



This chapter discusses the various ways in which physical and biological environments, mediated through human activities, influence the ecology of survival, reproduction, and transmission of infectious microorganisms. Topics include the interaction of abiotic and biotic factors; temporal and spatial scale and variation; ecological zones and the global distribution of diseases; population ecology and behaviour; immunity and transmission; and the diversity and complexity of transmission cycles.
