This volume, with contributions from eminent international researchers, includes the history of infectious disease outbreaks, population and evolutionary biology of human pathogens, and current epidemiological models describing how ecological and demographic changes produce new epidemics. Articles detail the major established pathogens as well as the new and sensational.
