Inquiry: RICHARD S. OSTFELD: Lyme Disease: The Ecology of a Complex System

Program: 
Date: 
Thursday, May 5, 2011 - 12:01pm

RICHARD S. OSTFELD is the Senior Scientist at the Cary Institute of Ecosystems Studies. For many years now he has been studying the ecology of Lyme Disease. What he and his fellow researchers have discovered will change the way you view this disease. Tune in and learn what animal vectors are the most competent reservoirs for spreading the disease and what habitats are the most productive for Lyme to spread to humans. This is also research that shows that “biodiversity, achieved by preventing forest fragmentation, protects us from Lyme Disease.” Professor Ostfeld’s important book is titled LYME DISEASE: THE ECOLOGY OF A COMPLEX SYSTEM.
