ECOLOGY OF DISEASE: BASIC INFORMATION Course name: Ecology of Disease Course Number: EEMB 40 Instructor: e-mail: latto@lifesci.ucsb.edu TA: e-mail: mordecai@lifesci.ucsb.edu Website/Blog: http://eemb40.blogspot.com/ Course Objectives This class is specifically designed to use the inherent interest that many people have in human health and disease to illustrate the tools and methodologies of both ecology and epidemiology. We will cover a broad range of disciplines from history to human health but the underlying theme will be the use of the scientific principles of ecology and epidemiology to study changes in the distribution and abundance of diseases. These changes will be examined both using historical examples and also by examining current disease patterns and predicting changes. The class will cover some simple models and techniques for data analysis but requires no mathematical background. Course readings:
