This is a major synthesis of the theory and empirical knowledge about the ecology and epidemiology of infectious diseases in natural, unmanaged, animal and plant populations. Throughout the book a dialogue is developed between the patterns observed in empirical studies of disease in natural populations and the mathematical models used to dissect and examine the observed epidemiological patterns. The book arose from a symposium at the Newton Institute at Cambridge University. It is divided into a number of reviews by experts in various fields and four group reports: two of these synthesize important issues relating to the dynamics of microparasites and macroparasites, while the others discuss spatial patterns in disease dynamics and the evolutionary biology of parasites, pathogens and their hosts.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Overall this book presents a valuable summary of current knowledge of quantitative ecology and epidemiology and is valuable to professionals interested in epidemiology and infection in various populations. The editors are to be congratulated on fulfilling this gap of knowledge.' International Journal of Epidemiology
'... an up-to-date source of both data and ideas.' Sarah E. Randolph, Parasitology Today
"...I recommend this book for all ecologists with an interest in diseases and population dynamics, as well as instructors interested in updating their course lecture notes on classic predator-prey interactions." Nicholas J. Gotelli, Quarterly Review of Biology
"...provides a comprehensive statement of what we do know by elegantly synthesizing current theory describing the dynamic behavior of diseases in nature and summarizing data from quantitative field studies....a rich resource for field studies of all levels of detail." Edwin Grosholz, Ecology
"This book represents the current state of thought and research connecting theory and data in host-parasite interactions, particularly for wildlife, and as such should find a home on the shelves of all workers in the field from graduate students to full professors to resource mnagers. Hopefully, it will promote meaningful collaboration in the future by theoreticians and empiricists in this very important area of ecology and evolution." Janet A. Morrison, Ecoscience
"Those who work in this area will undoubtedly wish to acquire their own copies of these books." B.S. Drasar, Epidemiol. Infect.
