Viral Infections and Global Change is a timely look at the impacts of global warming on the spread of infectious disease. As average world temperatures continue to rise, current climate change scenarios suggest that there will be a significant increase in the areas suitable for vector-borne viral transmission to humans. Viral Infections and Global Change offers detailed descriptions of the epidemiology, molecular pathogenesis and host pathogen interactions of a variety of these viral threats, as well as discussion of a host of other factors in the spread of infectious disease. The introduction of microbes and vectors through increased trans-boundary travel, and the expanding prevalence of drug and pesticide resistance are just a few of the trends generating concern about emerging and re-emerging viral infections.

With up to date information on the clinical aspects as well as the basic science of major human viral hemorrhagic fevers, Viral Infections and GlobalChange will be a useful resource for professionals in biology medicine, and veterinerary science working in ecology, environmental management, climatology, neurovirology, virology, and infectious disease.
