Biogeography has renewed its concepts and methods following important recent advances in phylogenetics macroecology, and geographic information systems In parallel, the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite interactions has attracted the interest of numerous studies dealing with life-history traits, evolution, community ecology, and evolutionary epidemiology.

The Biogeogiaphy of Host-Paiasite Inteiactions is the first book to integrate these two fields, using examples from a variety of host-paiasite associations in various regions, and across both ecological and evolutionary timescales Besides a strong theoretical component, there is a bias towards applications, specifically in the fields of historical biogeography, palaeontology phylogeography, landscape epidemiology, invasion biology, conservation biology, human evolution, and health ecology A particular emphasis concerns emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases linked to global changes.

This accessible text is intended for graduate students, professional researchers, and practitioners in the fields of evolutionary ecology parasitology, biogeography, and conservation biology, as well as a broadei audience from geography, epidemiology, and veterinary medicine
