Epidemics on the move: climate change and infectious disease

Special Issues

Public health and the welfare of the ecosystems that sustain us depend on understanding how global climate change will affect the dynamics and distribution of pathogens and their plant and animal hosts. Scientists face the considerable challenge of predicting which diseases may adapt to changing environmental conditions and increase in prevalence and which may undergo range contractions and even local extinctions. This PLOS Biology collection, “Epidemics on the Move: Climate Change and Infectious Disease,” features four papers that attempt to unravel some of this complexity through diverse disease systems, while highlighting key recommendations and approaches for further research.
