Plagues : the microscopic battlefield / Falynn Koch.

Microscopic battlefield (portion title)
Koch, Falynn, 1985- (author,, illustrator.).


In gloriously gross detail, you'll meet dangerous microscopic invaders like protozoa, fungi, viruses, and foreign bacteria - then see how our bodies work to fight back and defend us against future infections. We get to know the critters behind history's worst diseases. We delve into the biology and mechanisms of infections, diseases, and immunity, and also the incredible effect that technology and medical science have had on humanity's ability to contain and treat disease.
