Epidemiology is one of the most vibrant branches of applied ecology, and draws heavily on interdisciplinary studies, as demonstrated by the results gained from a six-month NATA Advanced Research Workshop, held in 1993.
The book is a nice reference work for students and researchers interested in epidemic models. JASA
