Zoonotic Viruses of Northern Eurasia: Taxonomy and Ecology provides a review of modern data of the taxonomy, distribution, and ecology of zoonotic viruses in the ecosystems of Northern Eurasia. With climate changes, increasing population density of arthropod vectors and vertebrate hosts, development of unused lands, transferences of viruses by birds, bats, infected humans, and animals, vectors allow virus populations to adapt to the new environment. This leads to the appearance of emerging or re-emerging infections.

This book presents data about circulation and evolution of influenza viruses, tick-borne encephalitis virus, West Nile virus, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus, hantaviruses, Sindbis virus, California encephalitis group viruses and other pathogenic viruses as well as of novel viruses classified for the first time using next-generation sequence.



  • Features summarized data about the circulation of approximately 80 viruses isolated in natural foci of Northern Eurasia
  • Provides descriptions of the main ecosystems of Northern Eurasia in the context of the ecology of viruses with environmental factors
  • Delineates the potential impact of climate change for the distribution of viruses
  • Includes virus taxonomy, ecology, distribution and pathogenicity for humans and animals
