EEMB40 – Ecology of Disease – John Latto GLOSSARY OF TERMS COVERED UP TO THE MIDTERM I have deliberately not included definitions here, even of acronyms  - you can find all these terms  defined in the glossary. For people and events you should know roughly when they occurred and the order in which they  occurred.  You don’t need to memorize dates. The amount of new terminology will decline as we  go through the course as we accumulate more and more terms.  Cholera and the origin of epidemiology Epidemiology Index Case Third Cholera Pandemic  Ecology Miasma theory Broad Street outbreak  Epidemic/Epizootic Contagion theory The Great Stink Endemic/Enzootic Incubation period Golden Age of Microbiology  Pandemic/Panzootic Common point source John Snow Prevalence Common Continuous Source Max Pettenkofer Incidence Propagated Source Louis Pasteur Virulence Epidemic Curve

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
