Book Description

A. Townsend Peterson; one of the forerunners of ecological niche modeling; offers a synthesis that illuminates new and more helpful infectious disease mapping methods. His work; Mapping Disease Transmission Risk; (PDF) – the peak of twelve years of refinement – breaks new ground by incorporating biogeographic and ecological factors with spatial models. Intended at public health experts and seasoned epidemiologists; this interdisciplinary ebook explains the conceptual and technical underpinnings of Peterson’s approach while concurrently describing the potentially enormous advantages of his modeling method. Peterson treats disease transmission areas for what they are – distributions of species. The ebook argues that fragmented; complex; and highly irregular disease patterns can only be comprehended when underlying environmental drivers are considered. The outcome is an elegant modeling approach that challenges static spatial models and offers a framework for recasting disease mapping. Anybody working in the area of disease transmission; mainly those employing predictive maps; will find Peterson’s ebook both inspiring and indispensable.


Mapping Disease Transmission Risk fills a gap in the present literature by addressing both the geographic and ecologic features of disease ecology.” — Lance A. Waller; Rollins School of Public Health; Emory University

In this ground-breaking work… A. Townsend Peterson breaks new ground… Peterson’s approach holds possibly enormous benefits for those charged with determining how disease spreads; and how to control that spread.” — Venkat Subramaniam Biz India Magazine

His main thesis is reiterated like a mantra throughout the text; and was well received by me―disease mapping must go beyond geography and better include ecology and biogeography. Peterson supports this thesis over 20 (mostly very short) chapters primarily through a broad; conceptual outline focused on methodological matters and caveats to ecological niche modeling (ENM); and through concise descriptions of several relevant case studies.” — Quarterly Review of Biology
