Invasive Microbes

Book - 2007
Rate this:

An increase in global transportation has helped even the tiniest of organisms--microbes--find their way to new environments. Influenzavirus A, or avian influenza (also known as bird flu), which originated in Asia, has steadily made its way to new countries as a result of commerce. This well-timed resource goes beyond the headlines in explaining the potentially devastating impact--including illness, death, and deformity--of invasive viruses, bacteria, protists, and fungi. This book evaluates scenarios for success in the escalating battle for containment.
