Could a better understanding of how the ocean and sea creatures fight disease outbreaks help humans prevent the next pandemic? Drew Harvell thinks so.
Dr. Harvell is a marine ecologist, confronting disease as a powerful force that has been restructuring marine ecosystems, from extremely climate-sensitive coral reef ecosystems to rocky intertidal shores to temperate seagrasses. Drew’s second book, Ocean Outbreak, investigates four major marine disease epidemics, how the consequent changes reverberate through the interactions of the ocean organisms themselves and even come back to threaten our livelihood and health. It exposes many of the raging challenges facing our oceans now and into the future, making it a compelling and topical read.
