    S Davis
    Department of Biology, University of Antwerp, Antwerp, Belgium
    Vector Borne Zoonotic Dis 5:305-14. 2005
    ..The few longer field studies (>5 years) show a positive but delayed relationship between reservoir abundance and reservoir prevalence...
  2. pmc Empirical assessment of a threshold model for sylvatic plague
    S Davis
    Department of Biology, University of Antwerp, Groenenborgerlaan 171, B 2020 Antwerp, Belgium
    J R Soc Interface 4:649-57. 2007
    ..Small sample size and local extinction received strong support and can account for most of the false positives. Host resistance received no support here but should be subject to more direct experimental testing...

    S Davis
    Department of Biology, University of Antwerp, Antwerp, Belgium
    Epidemiol Infect 135:740-8. 2007
    ..At one site, infection increased the chances of burrow-system extinction. Overall, it is useful to consider the burrow system as the unit of study within a much larger metapopulation...
