 en The use and mis-use of some ecological terms and concepts in epidemiology
Fernando D Avila-Pires

Abstract

The article discusses the current use and mis-use of
ecological terms and concepts in epidemiological literature,
and in special, in works dealing with zoonotic diseases. A
selection of examples was taken from papers recently published
on the transmission of Chagas' disease by Triatoma sordida.
Proper definitions are listed, with the intent of helping
non-ecologists to use those terms and concepts correctly.

Keywords
Triatoma sordida - ecology - Chagas' disease - epidemiology
