Description

New breakthroughs in interdisciplinary research dramatically revise long held theories about pre-Columbian and Colonial American epidemic disease. Papers survey pre-Columbian disease in the hemisphere, examine large epidemics of hemorrhagic fever in Mexico in 1576 and 1736, the use of tree ring analysis in determining weather patterns during epidemic outbreaks, critical review of the theory that the 1524 Andean epidemic was smallpox, concludes that it was rather bartonellosis, new research linking el nino events with increased bartonellosis outbreaks in Peru, and discussion on new, high tech methodologies that can help traditional biomedical and historical research better understand large epidemics of the past for better public health in the future.
