ARAGAO, Mario B.. As endemias rurais na Folha SA.22 Belém, do projeto RADAM. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 1987, vol.3, n.4, pp.469-472. ISSN 1678-4464.

Using data from endemic diseases from rural areas and their vectors and geologic, geomorphological and vegetation maps it was possible to plot areas where these diseases are possible to occur. Malaria is not found in one type of plateau and in another type of floodplain. Only the floodplains are free of muco-cutaneous leishmaniasis and the diffuse cutaneous form is restricted to some floodplains forest. Snail intermediate host of schistosomiasis can appear, after deforestation, in all areas presently not periodically flooded. Yellow fever has been found in all forest types, including the gallery forest of grasland zones.

Keywords : RADAM Project; Brazil, Amazon; Malaria; Leishmaniasis; Schistosomiasis; Yellow fever.
