Bats and Viruses

From Pathogen Discovery to Host Genomics

€ 151.15

Approximately 75% of emerging infectious diseases are zoonoses, and the rate of emergence of zoonotic diseases is on the rise. Bats are being increasingly recognised as an important reservoir of zoonotic viruses of different families, including SARS coronavirus, Nipah virus, Hendra virus and Ebola virus.

Inhoudsopgave:

Explanation of the grouping/flow of chapters

The book will cover five areas: introduction, virology, ecology/epidemiology, host biology and future directions.  However, since some of the topics may cover more than one area, it is believed that it is better not to organise the book into sections, instead it will be presented in different chapters which will flow from one area to another without clearly defining the borders .
