Evolution of infectious disease has already been called a milestone in the history of epidemiology it is easy to understand why the ideas presented in the book are revolutionary the level of research to support them is impeccable and they are conveyed in a manner which is both accessible and applicable. Findings from the field of evolutionary biology are yielding dramatic insights for health scientists especially those involved in the fight against infectious diseases this book is the first in depth presentation of these insights in detailing why the pathogens that cause malaria smallpox tuberculosis and aids have their special kinds of deadliness the book shows how efforts to control . Through studying the evolution of specific pathogens in depth the role of both natural selection and genetic drift will be illustrated the practical applications of experimental evolution and evolutionary theory in designing vaccines drugs and other interventions against infectious disease will also be covered.
