Venture capital investment in the international markets rebounded in the third quarter from the dismal previous quarter but still fell far short of the same period last year, according to new global data from industry tracker Dow Jones VentureSource.

Venture capitalists put $1.8 billion to work in 297 deals in Europe, Canada, Israel, China and India in the third quarter, up from $1.5 billion invested in the second quarter, but half of the $3.6 billion invested in the third quarter of 2008. (See charts below.)
