Epidemics of plant diseases: mathematical analysis and modeling
Springer-Verlag, 1990 - Computers - 268 pages
In this volume experts present the latest status of mathematical and statistical methods in use for the analysis and modeling of plant disease epidemics. Topics treated are - methods in multivariate analyses, ordination and classification, - modeling of temporal and spatial aspects of air- and soilborne diseases, - methods to analyse and describe competition among subpopulations, e.g. pathogen races and - their interaction with resistance genes of host plants - assemblage and use of models - mathematical simulation of epidemics. New chapters on the modeling of the spreading of diseases in air and in soil are included in this second edition.
