Bluetongue by Peter Mertens
Book DescriptionThe third volume in the Institute of Animal Health (IAH) "Biology of Animal Infections Series", "Bluetongue" discusses one of the most economically important diseases of domesticated livestock. Affecting primarily sheep particularly the improved mutton and wool breeds, it is now endemic in Africa, India, the Middle and Far East, Australia and the Americas, and over the last six years has caused a series of outbreaks throughout the Mediterranean region and central Europe. "Bluetongue" represent a paradigm not only for the other orbiviruses (such as African horse sickness virus, which shares the same vector species) but also for other insect transmitted diseases, including those of humans. This is the only single definitive work that provides both historical and up to date data on the disease. It describes the latest developments in epidemiological modeling, molecular epidemiology and vaccine development, as well as explaining the current global epidemiology of the disease. It outlines the importance and possible mechanisms of overwintering, and the impact of global warming on the vectors and virus distribution.
