New Synthesis The Evolution and Ecology of Disease

Evolutionary and ecological perspectives have transformed medical anthropology from a traditional focus on cultural aspects of health and healing and comparative study of medical systems to a broader perspective on human health in an environmental context. This transformation has been truly interdisciplinary.
