Lyme Disease

The Ecology of a Complex System

Richard Ostfeld

  • The UN is celebrating the International Year of Biodiversity in 2010. This would be an outstanding event to which the book could be connected. Biodiversity is a recurring theme.
  • The first book to challenge the dogma that Lyme disease is closely tied to abundance of deer
  • Treats human infectious disease as an ecological system
  • Ties protection of human health to the ways we manage natural habitats and landscapes
  • Uses Lyme disease as a model system for understanding many other emerging infectious diseases, including West Nile virus, hantavirus disease, SARS, and Schistosomiasis
