Lyme Disease: The Ecology of a Complex System.

Lyme Disease: The Ecology of a Complex System

Richard S. Ostfeld (2011)


New! Lyme disease is the most frequently reported vectorborne disease in the United States and very possibly the most misunderstood. This book is a thorough and much-needed critical assessment of the ecology of Lyme disease. It explains which factors impact Lyme disease risk, how humans get sick, and why the disease is spreading. The author goes further than do most other scientists, treating human infectious disease as an ecological system, and identifying Lyme disease as an excellent model for understanding many other emerging infectious human and animal diseases, including West Nile encephalitis, SARS, and schistosomiasis.
