While it is impossible to completely predict the implications of the myriad changes associated with the new world order on the emergence, transmission, and control of tropical diseases, they cannot be ignored. Despite improved technology utilizing diagnostic tests and vaccines, the international movement of live animals and the complexity of food trading patterns is increasing the risk of emerging diseases for both animals and humans. Animal pathogens continue to establish new niches and undergo genetic mutation. This volume speaks to these problems in papers that address issues of world trade and disease control; epidemiology, parasitology and microbiology of emerging diseases; and technology, vaccines, pharmaceuticals, quarantine, and regulatory control and communication as tools of control and prevention.
