This book deals with infectious diseases -- viral, bacterial, protozoan and helminth -- in terms of the dynamics of their interaction with host populations. The book combines mathematical models with extensive use of epidemiological and other by: Since the beginning of this century there has been a growing interest in the study of the epidemiology and population dynamics of infectious disease agents. Mathematical and statistical methods have played an important role in the development of this field and a large, and sophisticated, literature exists which is concerned with the theory of Cited by: Tropical Diseases. Some of the organisms that cause tropical diseases are bacteria and viruses, terms that may be familiar to most people since these types of organisms cause illness common in the U.S.. Less well known are those more complex organisms commonly referred to as of these types of agents may be referred to generically as pathogens -- meaning . Tropical Dynamics The effects of climate variability and climate change on tropical precipitation is clearly of great importance for tropical societies and ecosystems. Yet our understanding of how the distribution of precipitation is controlled in the tropics remains very imperfect.

Several metrics are used to categorize the destructive potential of cyclones, based on a combination of pressure, wind speed, storm surge, and structural by: Welcome to Epidemics: the Dynamics of Infectious Diseases.

Since the beginning of this century there has been a growing interest in the study of the epidemiology and population dynamics of infectious disease agents. Mathematical and statistical methods have played an important role in the development of this field and a large, and sophisticated, literature. Tropical disease, any disease that is indigenous to tropical or subtropical areas of the world or that occurs principally in those areas. Examples of tropical diseases include malaria, cholera, Chagas disease, yellow fever, and dengue.. Historical overview of tropical diseases. Diseases of the tropics and subtropics have been known since ancient times. Epidemiology of Tropical Cyclones: The Dynamics of Disaster, Disease, and Development Article Literature Review (PDF Available) in Epidemiologic Reviews . This book deals with infectious diseases -- viral, bacterial, protozoan and helminth -- in terms of the dynamics of their interaction with host populations. The book combines mathematical models with extensive use of epidemiological and other data. This analytic framework is highly useful for the evaluation of public health strategies aimed at controlling or eradicating particular infections.
