_at_ andrew:
I think he means Tuberculosis.

@inuyasha:
by ecology, do you mean what kind of environment it is spread in?
usually proverty-stricken environments where sanitation is compromised and it's transmission is encouraged by the close human contact present in such environments.

These sites have some information on tuberculosis:

- http://www.intelihealth.com/IH/ihtIH/WS ... 10604.html
- http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/quer ... t=Citation (this might be interesting to you, it's about tb in New York, which is where you live, right?)
- http://www.cdc.gov/nchstp/tb/faqs/qa.htm
- http://www.tuberculosis.net/
- http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/tuberculosis.html
- http://www.who.int/tb/en/
- http://www.osha.gov/SLTC/tuberculosis/
- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuberculosis

by the way, i really hope that you meant tuberculosis when you said tb, and not something else, otherwise i'd be a bit sheepish... :wink:
