Disease ecology is a rapidly developing subdiscipline of ecology concerned with how species interactions and abiotic components of the environment affect patterns and processes of disease. To date, disease ecology has focused largely on infectious disease. Disease Ecology highlights exciting advances in theoretical and empirical research towards understanding the importance of community structure in the emergence of infectious diseases.

The chapters in this book illustrate aspects of community ecology that influence pathogen transmission rates and disease dynamics in a wide variety of study systems.5/5(1). Disease ecology The interaction of Ecology behavior and ecology of hosts with the biology of pathogens, as it relates to the impact of diseases on populations.

Threshold theorem For a disease to spread, on average it must be successfully transmitted to a new host before its current host dies or Disease. This observation lies at the core of the most.

Social Ecology of Infectious Diseases explores how human activities enable microbes to disseminate and evolve, thereby creating favorable conditions for the diverse manifestations of communicable diseases. Today, infectious and parasitic diseases cause about one-third of deaths and are the and Health book leading cause of morbidity and mortality.

Traditional infectious disease biologists have provided us with considerable understanding of the pathology of disease, and how to mitigate its effects on directly afflicted individuals and populations.

However, if this knowledge is not integrated with ecology, it cannot help us to anticipate infectious disease outbreaks, or to measure their indirect effects on the wider ecological : Dan Haydon.
