Population biology of vector-borne diseases
Drake JM., Bonsall MB., Strand MR.
This book concerns the population biology of vector-borne diseases. Vector-borne diseases of people are a perennial challenge for public health. Although recent decades have enjoyed major declines in the incidence of diseases like malaria and onchocerciasis (river blindness), vector-borne diseases continue to claim the lives of more than 700, 000 people per year and exact costs of tens of billions of dollars in expenses for control and through lost productivity.
