Local persistence and extinction of plague in a metapopulation of great gerbil burrows, Kazakhstan
Speculation on how the bacterium Yersinia pestis re-emerges after years of absence in the Prebalkhash region in Kazakhstan has been ongoing for half a century, but the mechanism is still unclear. One
ocal persistence and extinction of plague in a metapopulation of great gerbil urrows , Kazakhstan
A metapopulation model is used that describes the dynamics of the great gerbil and shows how the bacterium Yersinia pestis re-emerges in so-called hotspots during times where the conditions in the Prebalkhash region as a whole have become unfavourable for plague persistence.

Yersinia pestis, the cause of plague, is a recently emerged clone of Yersinia pseudotuberculosis.
Analysis of the population genetic structure of Y. pestis and the two other pathogenic Yersinia species shows consistent with previous inferences that Antiqua caused a plague pandemic in the sixth century, Medievalis caused the Black Death and subsequent epidemics during the second pandemic wave, and Orientalis cause the current Plague pandemic.
Relationship between increase rate of human plague in China and global climate index as revealed by cross-spectral and cross-wavelet analyses.
Analysis of relationship between increase rate of human plague in China during 1871-2003 and climate factors indicates that ENSO-driven climate variation may be important for occurrences of human Plague in China.
Plague: Past, Present, and Future
The authors argue that plague should be taken much more seriously by the international health community and the government should take plague more seriously.
