About the Authors
  • Climate change has been identified as the biggest global health threat of the twenty-first century. Hundreds of millions of people around the world currently suffer from allergic diseases such as asthma and allergic rhinitis (hay fever), and the prevalence of these diseases is increasing. This book is the first authoritative and comprehensive assessment of the many impacts of climate change on allergens, such as pollen and mould spores, and allergic diseases. The international authorship team of leaders in this field explore the topic to a breadth and depth far beyond any previous work. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in climate change, environmental allergens, and related allergic diseases. It is written at a level that is accessible for those working in related physical, biological, and health and medical sciences, including researchers, academics, clinicians, and advanced students.

    • An in-depth and comprehensive assessment from which readers will gain a complete picture of the impacts of climate change on allergens and allergic diseases
    • The topic is approached from a global/international perspective, and readers will gain a complete picture of the topic rather than that for just one region or nation
    • Both past and future impacts of climate change on allergens and allergic diseases are examined, helping readers to understand the impacts that have already happened and that we are currently living with, as well as projections for the future
    • Each chapter considers knowledge gaps and research priorities, showing the directions in which research efforts are required in the future

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This work is the first to bring together a worldwide panel of experts with this focus. The interdisciplinary nature of the subject shines through as authors introduce topics in a manner that will be accessible to clinicians, researchers, and students … the book as a whole is a vital addition to the library of anyone with an interest in how the foremost issue of our day is projected to affect aerobiology and allergic disease.' Michelle North, Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology

    '… a seminal work in environmental health … a thorough assessment of the allergen landscape and projections of future paradigms … incisive and straightforward … an invaluable contribution to health and environmental health literacy, and useful to clinicians and patients … one of the most coherent analyses of climate change and allergens and allergic disease today. The book is useful for any individual teaching or practicing in the health sciences or in public health, as well as those in the field of environmental science.' L. H. Taylor, Jr, Choice
