About this book

The first major study of the potentially enormous and devastating health impacts of the global atmospheric changes which are under way. The author uses the available current knowledge to model plausible future health impacts: vector-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue fever and schistosomiasis; marine borne diseases such as cholera and toxic algae; cancers and cataracts from ozone depletion; cardiovascular and respiratory disorders from higher temperatures and air pollution.


An eco-epidemiological modelling approach; climate change and vector-borne diseases; modelling malaria as a complex adaptive system; climate change thermal stress and mortality changes; the impact of ozone depletion on skin cancer incidence.
