About the Author

Rick Ostfeld is Senior Scientist and Animal Ecologist at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, Millbrook, New York.


"Researchers and graduate students interested in ecological and population aspects of Lyme disease will find value in this concise, well-argued booklet, with its clear historical account of Lyme disease epidemic, an up-to-date list of primary citations on Lyme disease ecology, and a rich source of ecological hypotheses for future studies. Especially, I recommend this volume highly to graduate students and researchers entering the field of ecology of enzootic infectious disease (Lyme disease, in particular) for its values in both as an introductory text of the field and as a vivid and inspiring guide on how to build a successful research career by being a contrarian and iconoclast." -- New Biological Books
