The use of species distribution models (SDM) is of increasing popularity when studying biological invasions, e.g. to assess the impact of climate change on invasive species, to prioritize conservation measures, or to study invasive evolutionary biology. SDM correlate known occurrences of species...

Knowledge of the extent of the symptoms of a plant disease, generally referred to as severity, is a key to both fundamental and applied aspects of plant pathology. Most commonly, severity is obtained visually and the accuracy of each estimate (closeness to the actual value) by individual raters is...

Mathematical modelling of intra-host malaria is a relatively recent topic. Although the first mathematical model related to malaria was proposed by Sir Ronald Ross in 1915, the first attempt to model the parasite-host interactions was as recent as 1989. Since then, a moderate but steadily growing...
