Die-off of E. coli and enterococci in dairy cowpats
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2008)
E. coli and enterococci re-growth and decay patterns in cowpats applied to pasturelands were monitored during the spring, summer fall, and winter First-order approximations were used to determine die-off rate coefficients ...
Poor-data and data-poor species stock assessment using a Bayesian hierarchical approach
(Ecological Society of America, 2011-10)
Appropriate inference for stocks or species with low-quality data (poor data) or limited data (data poor) is extremely important. Hierarchical Bayesian methods are especially applicable to small-area, small-sample-size ...
Multiple regime shifts in a subtropical peatland: community-specific thresholds to eutrophication
(Ecological Society of America, 2008-11)
Ecosystems have a natural resilience to perturbations, where resilience is the magnitude of a disturbance that an ecosystem can resist before changes in structure, function, and services result in a regime shift. The ...

Mathematical models are a powerful method to understand and control the spread of Huanglongbing
Huanglongbing (HLB), or citrus greening, is a global citrus disease occurring in almost all citrus growing regions. It causes substantial economic burdens to individual growers, citrus industries and governments. Successful ...

A Statistical Framework for the Adaptive Management of Epidemiological Interventions
Background: Epidemiological interventions aim to control the spread of infectious disease through various mechanisms, each carrying a different associated cost. Methodology: We describe a flexible statistical framework for ...
Understanding uncertainty in temperature effects on vector-borne disease: a Bayesian approach
(Ecological Society of America, 2015)
Extrinsic environmental factors influence the distribution and population dynamics of many organisms, including insects that are of concern for human health and agriculture. This is particularly true for vector-borne ...
