Statistical Physics Of Vaccination
Historically, infectious diseases caused considerable damage to human societies, and they continue to do so today. To help reduce their impact, mathematical models of disease transmission have been studied to help understand ...
Coupling Fishery Dynamics, Human Health And Social Learning In A Model Of Fish-Borne Pollution Exposure
Pollution-induced illnesses are caused by toxicants that result from human activity and are often entirely preventable. However, where industrial priorities have undermined responsible governance, exposed populations must ...
The Impacts Of Simultaneous Disease Intervention Decisions On Epidemic Outcomes
Mathematical models of the interplay between disease dynamics and human behavioural dynamics can improve our understanding of how diseases spread when individuals adapt their behaviour in response to an epidemic. Accounting ...
Landowner Perceptions Of The Value Of Natural Forest And Natural Grassland In A Mosaic Ecosystem In Southern Brazil
The forest-grassland mosaics of southern Brazil have been subject to many land use and policy changes over the decades. Like many grasslands around the world, the Campos grasslands are declining with few conservation efforts ...
Emergence and spread of drug resistant influenza: A two-population game theoretical model
Background The potential for emergence of antiviral drug resistance during influenza pandemics has raised great concern for public health. Widespread use of antiviral drugs is a significant factor in producing resistant ...
Disease Dynamics And Costly Punishment Can Foster Socially Imposed Monogamy
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-04-01)
Socially imposed monogamy in humans is an evolutionary puzzle because it requires costly punishment by those who impose the norm. Moreover, most societies were-and are-polygynous; yet many larger human societies transitioned ...
