  • Complexity and anisotropy in host morphology make populations less susceptible to epidemic outbreaks 

    Perez-Reche, Francisco J.; Taraskin, Sergei N.; Costa, Luciano da F.; Neri, Franco M.; Gilligan, Christopher A. (The Royal Society, 2010-07)
    One of the challenges in epidemiology is to account for the complex morphological structure of hosts such as plant roots, crop fields, farms, cells, animal habitats and social networks, when the transmission of infection ...
  • Epidemics in networks of spatially correlated three-dimensional root-branching structures 

    Handford, Thomas P.; Perez-Reche, Francisco J.; Taraskin, Sergei N.; Costa, Luciano da F.; Miazaki, Mauro; Neri, Franco M.; Gilligan, Christopher A. (The Royal Society, 2011-03)
    Using digitized images of the three-dimensional, branching structures for root systems of bean seedlings, together with analytical and numerical methods that map a common susceptible–infected–recovered (‘SIR’) epidemiological ...
