Book Description

Enteric pathogenic viruses are a major challenge in public health, as they represent a major concern with a severe global impact to the economy, commerce, and health systems. Consequently, their active monitoring can allow preventive surveillance and the discovery of new viruses, exemplifying an important epidemiological and health control tool.

In an unprecedented way, this book addresses the general characteristics of enteric viruses and their environmental transmission, with a particular emphasis on their structures, stability, routes of transmission and the use of bioindicators for epidemiological monitoring and control. In addition, this book will also address the recent developments for viral concentration and detection in environmental and food samples and the challenges for the control of environmental and food viruses to reduce microbiological risk for final consumers.
