Socio-Ecological Dimensions of Infectiou Paperback – Import 28 Oct 2016
Product Description From the Back Cover 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." About the Author 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 . Jean-Pierre Dujardin is a medical doctor specialized in medical entomology. His research is focused on the epidemiological relevance of population structure and biodiversity of vectors. He has spent more than 20 years doing field-based research in South America (Chagas disease and Leishmaniasis vectors) South East Asia (arboviroses vectors) and Africa (onchocerciasis and sleeping disease vectors). His main approaches were based on population genetics and phenetics concepts. He has authored a number of papers chapters and books related to these topics and has created a morphometric package covering most of the current modern morphometric analyzes (landmark-based and outline-based morphometrics). Regine Lefait-Robin is a medical doctor. She specializes in "mother and child health and tropical infectious diseases. She has also authored and co-authored a number of articles on "mother and child health" and infectious diseases (malaria IST HIV-PMTC) and a book on disease vector control in France . She was the team leader of the Institut de Recherche pour le Development (IRD) in Thailand and the regional coordinator for IRD research activities in the South and South-east Asia from 2008 to 2013. She chaired the organizing committee of the first international meeting on socio-ecological dimension of infectious diseases (SEDID) held in Bangkok in October 2011. She is now responsible for the High Council of Public Health (HCSP) in Paris but also remains a member of the BiodivHealthSEA and Grease networks. Chamnarn Apiwathnasorn is a medical entomologist head of the Department of Entomology at Tropical Medicine Faculty of Mahidol University. He has authored numerous publications on mosquito-borne diseases. He recent research investigates the effects of global and climate changes on the risks of mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria or dengue. For this he develops new tools including barcoding of vectors. He received the Best Research Work entitled "Anopheles minimus species A complex in Thailand and their impact on malaria control" from The National Research Council of Thailand in 1998."
