Abstract

Epidemiology has an important history and increasing relevance for understanding the public, veterinary, and wildlife health significance of vector-borne diseases in our rapidly changing world. For more than a century, epidemiology has been an integrative science, combining entomology and microbiology with mathematics, statistics, and a wide range of other disciplines to characterize patterns in vector-borne diseases, understand their transmission cycles, and develop effective methods for surveillance and control. Novel molecular methods and modelling approaches are providing exciting new tools to advance our capacity to understand and respond to the growing number of threats from emerging vector-borne diseases.
