Competition Between Injunctive Social Norms And Conservation Priorities Gives Rise To Complex Dynamics In A Model Of Forest Growth And Opinion Dynamics
Human and environmental systems are often treated as existing in isolation from one another, whereas in fact they are often two parts of a single, coupled human-environment system. Developing theoretical models of coupled ...
Dynamics Of The Global Wheat Trade Network And Resilience To Shocks
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-08-03)
Agri-food trade networks are increasingly vital to human well-being in a globalising world. Models can help us gain insights into trade network dynamics and predict how they might respond to future disturbances such as ...
Critical Dynamics In Population Vaccinating Behavior
(National Academy of Sciences, 2017-12-26)
Vaccine refusal can lead to renewed outbreaks of previously eliminated diseases and even delay global eradication. Vaccinating decisions exemplify a complex, coupled system where vaccinating behavior and disease dynamics ...
Strategic Interactions in Antiviral Drug Use During an Influenza Pandemic
(Public Library of Science, 2017-01-12)
Background: The evolution of antiviral drug resistance during influenza pandemics has created widespread concern. Use of antiviral drugs is a main contributor to the evolution of drug-resistant strains. Moreover, there are ...
Interconnections accelerate collapse in a socio-ecological metapopulation
(Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, 2017-09-28)
Resource over-exploitation can have profound effects on both ecosystems and the human populations residing in them. Models of population growth based on a depletable resources have been studied previously, but relatively ...
Truncation selection and diffusion on random graphs
Two-strategy evolutionary games on graphs have been extensively studied in the literature. A variety of graph structures, degrees of graph dynamics, and behaviours of replicators have been explored. These models have ...
