How does the spatial structure of habitat loss affect the eco-epidemic dynamics?
Habitat loss is considered as one of the primary causes of species extinction, especially for a species that also suffers from an epidemic disease. Little attention has been paid to the combined effect of habitat loss and ...
An Eco-epidemiological System with Infected Predator
(IEEE (http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/), 2010)
Epidemic is considered as one of the primary causes of species extinction, especially it also can induce populations suffering from Allee effect. Using ordinary differential equation and lattice model, we here explored ...
The effect of migration on the spatial structure of intraguild predation in metapopulations
We consider the effects of migration on intraguild predation (IGP) via lattice models and pair approximation. The following results can be found: there exists asymmetry between two consumers’ migration effects on the ...
On the scaling patterns of species spatial distribution and association
Understanding how species distribution (occupancy and spatial autocorrelation) and association (that is, multi-species co-distribution) change across scales is fundamental to unlocking the pattern formation in population ...
The effect of predation on the prevalence and aggregation of pathogens in prey
Although pathogens and predators have been widely used as bio-control agents against problematic prey species, little has been done to examine the prevalence and aggregation of pathogens in spatially structured eco-epi ...
Spatial patterns of prisoner’s dilemma game in metapopulations
(Society for Mathematical Biology, 2007)
Because to defect is the evolutionary stable strategy in the prisoner’s dilemma game (PDG), understanding the mechanism generating and maintaining cooperation in PDG, i.e. the paradox of cooperation, has intrinsic significance ...
