Infectious ecology - a new direction of scientific research. A new paradigm has been developed to study the nature of infection, infectious processes and infectious diseases. Infection is understood as a discrete property of the ecological system of microorganisms. Changes in the ecological organization of microorganisms can lead to a discrete activation of their pathogenic properties. There is what is called "infectious disease". The spectrum of such manifestations is large. Their specificity is associated with microorganisms and their epigeosystems (EGS). A new explanation of the nature of activation of pathogens is extremely important and curious in connection with climate change. Examples are given of the study of infectious diseases from new scientific positions (ebola, tularaemia, bluetongue disease and some others).
