About this book

The study of epidemiology is an essential part of understanding how infectious diseases emerge, and how they affect humans, wildlife and wildlife conservation. The integration of modelling techniques with parasitology and population dynamics has been hugely significant for our understanding of disease dynamics. This book on wildlife epidemiology brings the subject right up to date, covering the most recent empirical and theoretical developments in the field. Contents include: Ecology of wildlife diseases; Heterogeneities in macroparasite infections: patterns and processes; Parasites and host population dynamics; Parasite community ecology and biodiversity; Microparasite transmission and persistence; Spatial aspects of disease dynamics; The ecology of tick-borne infections in wildlife reservoirs; The role of pathogens in biological conservation; Visions for future research in wildlife epidemiology.
