Description:

This book pursues a multidisciplinary approach in order to evaluate the socio-ecological dimensions of infectious diseases in Southeast Asia. It includes 18 chapters written by respected researchers in the fields of history, sociology, ecology, epidemiology, veterinary sciences, medicine and the environmental sciences on six major topics: (1) Infectious diseases and societies, (2) Health, infectious diseases and socio-ecosystems; (3) Global changes, land use changes and vector-borne diseases; (4) Monitoring and data acquisition; (5) Managing health risks; and (6) Developing strategies. The book offers a valuable guide for students and researchers in the fields of development and environmental studies, animal and human health (veterinarians, physicians), ecology and conservation biology, especially those with a focus on Southeast Asia.

Dr. Serge Morand is interested in evolutionary ecology of host-parasite interactions and population ecology of parasites and pathogens. As a field parasitologist, he is concerned at the role of biodiversity as risks and insurance for zoonotic emerging infectious diseases. He is conducting several projects on the impacts of global changes on the links between biodiversity and health in Southeast Asia, using rodent-borne diseases as a model. Dr. Morand is also the co-author of several articles and books on these domains. He was still recently a member of the scientific board of the French Research Foundation for Biodiversity and is currently leading several projects in Southeast Asia: Project ANR BiodivHealthSEA “Local impacts and perceptions of global changes: health, biodiversity and zoonoses in Southeast Asia”, the Project ANR CERoPath “Community Ecology of Rodents and their pathogens in changing Southeast Asian Environments” and the AFD-CNRS PathoDivSEA “Pathogen Diversity of Southeast ASIA”.

User’s Review:

Contributes to a new vision of “One Health,” combining history, anthropology, ecology and environment together with veterinary and medical medicine

Challenges conventional ideas on conservation biology and ecosystem services in relation to human and animal health
