Adaptive Dynamics of Infectious Diseases

In Pursuit of Virulence Management

Adaptive Dynamics of Infectious Diseases

This monograph takes stock of our current knowledge on the evolutionary ecology of infectious diseases, and sets out the goals for the management of virulent pathogens. Throughout the text, the fundamental concepts and techniques underlying the models are carefully explained in a unique series of integrated boxes.

"The volume achieves its aims of being an introductory text for researchers to expand their range of knowledge and stimulate new enquiry." Dr. Jodie McVernon, Epidemiol Infect

"Virulence management will continue to be a hot topic that will undoubtedly be subject to much refinement. This book provides an outstanding treatment of the ecological, evolutionary, and physiological richness of this active area of research. Ecologists will find it richly rewarding and stimulating, and if health professionals give it a try, they will find much to guide health policy." Ecoscience

'… a starting point for further study … comprehensive references introduce a very extensive literature to facilitate this … the volume achieves its aims of being an introductory text for researchers to expand their range of knowledge and stimulate new enquiry.' Journal of Epidemiology & Infection
