Modeling the Impact of Global Warming on Vector-Borne Infections

Eduardo Massad et al. Phys Life Rev.

Abstract

Global warming will certainly affect the abundance and distribution of disease vectors. The effect of global warming, however, depends on the complex interaction between the human host population and the causative infectious agent. In this work we review some mathematical models that were proposed to study the impact of the increase in ambient temperature on the spread and gravity of some insect-transmitted diseases.
