A cyclical feeding model for pathogen transmission and its application to determine vectorial capacity from vector infection rates.

Published online: 13 Jul 1991

Authors: Saul, A. J. & Graves, P. M. & Kay, B. H.

Content type: Journal article

Journal title: Journal of Applied Ecology

A model of disease transmission was formulated which assumed that vector feeding behaviour is cyclical rather than continuous. This model led to equat...
