Biodiversity and Health: Linking Life, Ecosystems and Societies (PDF Book)
Biodiversity and Health: Linking Life, Ecosystems and Societies
by Serge Morand (Author)
This book aims to bridge the gap between the ecology of health and the concepts put forward by global initiatives such as EcoHealth, One Health, and Planetary Health. With the world’s growing population, industrialization, and geopolitics exacerbating global change, biodiversity is suffering, affecting both humans and animals. However, Biodiversity and Health presents an opportunity to demonstrate the contributions of ecological, environmental, medical, and social sciences to human health and well-being through the preservation of biodiversity and its societal services.
This book offers an expansive and comprehensive overview of the scientific disciplines involved in linking health and biodiversity, exploring everything from the evolutionary ecology of infectious and non-infectious diseases to ethics, law, and politics.
