J Theor Biol 255:299-306. 2008..In turn, parasite removal from food webs can have catastrophic effects. We discuss the implications for biological control and resource management on more than one trophic level...
- The Allee effect and infectious diseases: extinction, multistability, and the (dis-)appearance of oscillationsFrank M Hilker
Center for Mathematical Biology, Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, University of Alberta, 501 CAB, Edmonton, Alberta T6G 2G1, Canada
Am Nat 173:72-88. 2009..This may have profound implications for biological conservation as well as pest management. We identify important threshold quantities and attribute the dynamical behavior to the joint interplay of a strong Allee effect and infection...
