Studies in Viral Ecology

Two Volume Set

€ 285.75

This book explains the ecology of viruses by examining their interactive dynamics with their hosting species (this 2-volume set covers animals as well as microbes and plants), including the types of transmission cycles that viruses have evolved encompassing principal and alternate hosts, vehicles and vectoring species.
