Emerging, Reemerging Viral Infections and Climate 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 Climate 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, Emerging, Reemerging Viral Infections and Climate Change will be a useful resource for professionals in biology medicine, and veterinerary science working in ecology, environmental management, climatology, neurovirology, virology, and infectious disease.
