Kevin Lafferty, an ecologist at the U.S. Geological Survey who was not involved in the research, said the study is important because it isolates how temperature affects malaria. "Normally, if we were to compare a cool country and a hot country, there could easily be a lot of economic differences," he said.

Kevin Lafferty is a research ecologist with the U.S. Geological Survey who has cautioned that, rather than leading to blanket increases in disease, climate change may cause the incidence of some disease to decrease in some places. But Lafferty, too, thinks that public health readiness is ignored at society's peril: "There are obviously going to be direct relationships between how we choose to invest in public health and the risk of infectious disease," Lafferty said.

Independent of the complicated factors that Lafferty believes determine changes in the baseline risk of disease, he is certain on one point: across the board, risk will be worse than it otherwise would be in the absence of adequate investment in public health.
Kevin Lafferty, a research ecologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, has done research showing that the impact of climate change on disease will not be linear: some diseases may increase in some areas while others decrease elsewhere.

"If you are not including parasites in food webs, you aren't getting the whole picture," said Kevin Lafferty, a marine ecologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, and adjunct professor in the UCSB Department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology (EEMB). "They are consumers like predators, but they are less visible and easy to forget."

Lafferty, along with research biologist Ryan Hechinger, professor of zoology Armand Kuris, and graduate student researcher John McLaughlin, all from UCSB EEMB and the campus's Marine Science Institute, provided many of the missing pieces to fill out the whole picture.
The paper was the result of a working group led by Lafferty at UCSB's National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis.
