  • Can incomplete spatial coverage of control measures prevent invasion of fungal parasites? 

    Otten, Wilfred; Bailey, Douglas J.; Ludlam, Jon J.; Gilligan, Christopher A. (IOBC/WPRS, 2004)
    We examine the invasion of a pathogenic fungus into populations of susceptibles. Combining epidemiological concepts with percolation theory we derive and test the following hypothesis: 1) fungal invasion into a population ...
  • Quantification and analysis of transmission rates for soilborne epidemics 

    Otten, Wilfred; Filipe, J. A. N.; Bailey, D. J.; Gilligan, C. A. (Ecological Society of America, 2003)
    The rates of transmission of infection from inoculum or infecteds to susceptible hosts are critical determinants of epidemics, yet no formal experimental methods have been described for their quantification and analysis ...
  • Synergy in spreading processes: from exploitative to explorative foraging strategies 

    Perez-Reche, Francisco J.; Ludlam, Jonathan J.; Taraskin, Sergei N.; Gilligan, Christopher A. (American Physical Society, 2011-05)
    An epidemiological model which incorporates synergistic effects that allow the infectivity and/or susceptibility of hosts to be dependent on the number of infected neighbours is proposed. Constructive synergy induces an ...
