Adaptive Dynamics of Infectious Diseases: In Pursuit of Virulence Management

by

Adaptive Dynamics of Infectious Diseases: In Pursuit of Virulence Management Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

An integrated study of the evolutionary ecology of infectious diseases and the management of virulent pathogens.
