A spatially aggregated disease/host model for bovine Tb in New Zealand possum populations


, : A spatially aggregated disease/host model for bovine Tb in New Zealand possum populations. Journal of Applied Ecology, 283: 777-793

Deterministic disease/host models based on differential equations, with and without age-structure, are used to aid understanding of the epidemiology of bovine tuberculosis (Tb) in New Zealand possum (Trichosurus vulpecula) populations. Because of the patchiness of bovine Tb in possum populations the classic models are modified to include spatial aggregation of the disease, which is quantified using field data.

Experiments are surveyed, suggesting that rats (WKY and SHR) have a very wide 'safety range' concerning salt intake with respect to cardiovascular homeostasis. Further, they are able to maintain their 'resting' volume and circu...

The tuberculosis (TB) epidemic is well controlled in most developed countries and the focus in these areas has shifted to TB eradication. Transmission within nonendemic areas is limited and most cases of TB result from reactivation of distant (lat...

We have studied the elements involved in the tetradecanoylphorbol acetate (TPA)-mediated extinction of erythroid-specific genes. We show that transcription driven by a -714/+78-base pair DNA fragment of the erythroid promoter of the human porphobi...

The device described in AA 599/83 was used for burning strips containing 0.5 g dicofol. In laboratory tests the 24-h LD50 for V. jacobsoni was reached with 5 mg dicofol/dmsuperscript 3 for 9 min. Using 10 mg/dmsuperscript 3, all treatments for 4 m...
