dynamics  of  human  diseases.  This  has  propelled 
both in-depth research and global debate; however,                   and disease
the  discussion  on  the  impact  of  human  health  has             dynamiCs in india
been  scarce.  This  book  attempts  to  bring  together              understanding the link between
climate  modelling  specialists,  medical  doctors,                   planetary and population health
and  community  health  practitioners  to  elucidate 
on  disease  dynamics,  as  modified  by  global 
environmental  change.  Important  issues  covered 
include  climate  epidemiology  and  environmental 
biostatistics,  climate-sensitive  diseases,  issues 
around thermal stress and so on.

About TERI
From biotechnology to global climate change, from
smoke-filled rural kitchens to plush corporate board-
rooms, from schoolchildren to heads of state-no
sphere of human endeavour is unfamiliar to TERI.
Headed by Rajendra K Pachauri, also chairman of the
Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC)
and joint-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007,
TERI has state-of-the-art laboratories, yet it is more
than a research outfit; it has looked into the past and
into the future of the world’s natural resources, yet it
is more than a think tank; it has worked with affluent
communities and in slums, in very large cities and in
remote villages, among factory workers and farmers,
yet it is more than an NGO; it publishes journals and
books, yet it is more than a publisher; and it deploys
its professional expertise to undertake contract re-
search, yet is more than a consulting firm.

pendent publisher in its own right. Best known for
