Under the Weather: Climate, Ecosystems, and Infectious Disease
Category: For Scientists, Climate Change
Resource Type: Book
Date Posted: 10/31/2007

This scientific report addresses questions on climate change and public health. Can we use climate and weather forecasts to predict infectious disease outbreaks? Can the field of public health advance from "surveillance and response" to "prediction and prevention?" Can we predict how global warming will affect the emergence and transmission of infectious disease agents around the world? Under the Weather evaluates our current understanding of the linkages among climate, ecosystems, and infectious disease; it then goes a step further and outlines the research needed to improve our understanding of these linkages. "...written in an accessible style in order to appeal to a wide-ranging audience." -- Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, August 2002.
