Climate, Ecosystems, and Infectious Disease

National Academies Press

This online book evaluates the current understanding of the linkages among climate, ecosystems, and infectious disease. It outlines the research needed to improve the understanding of these linkages and examines the potential for using climate forecasts and ecological observations to help predict infectious disease outbreaks. The entire book may be read online in HTML or PDF formats, and hard copies may be ordered from the site.
