Climate-driven plague outbreaks in Asia were repeatedly introduced into medieval Europe, new research from CEES, Norway, and WSL, Switzerland, shows.
Biologists at CEES, Department of Biosciences, are now making a giant effort to identify the relationship between climate change, rat infestations, and the many major plague epidemics throughout history. The knowledge may be used to predict the next plague outbreak.
CEES organises a 2-day conference on the history of plague, at the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters. The conference has several prominent speakers, and ends with summarising thoughts by Jared Diamond.
