Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 103:11802-7. 2006..We then show how understanding the persistence and eradication of dengue serotypes critically depends on the alternative assumed mechanisms...

Institute of Ecology, University of Georgia, Athens, GA 30602, USA
J Theor Biol 245:9-25. 2007..Such a framework may be especially helpful in disentangling the effects of partially cross-immunizing infections that affect populations with a pre-disposition towards immunosuppression such as children and the elderly...

J Anim Ecol 76:83-93. 2007..5. Such switching modes of competition suggest that the relative importance of the mechanisms regulating single-species population dynamics (i.e. resource competition) may change when organisms are embedded within a wider community...
