Abstract: Many important human, wildlife and livestock diseases infect multiple host species. However, in most cases only a subset of the hosts that can be infected are important for long-term pathogen persistence at the population level (i.e. the ‘reservoir’). Failure to understand which hosts constitute the infection reservoirs greatly undermines control strategies. There is still no standard approach to identify reservoirs but in this talk, using a series of case-studies, I will show how using modelling techniques such state-space modelling (SSM) can help us address this previously intractable problem by enabling dissection of disease dynamics. Specifically, quantification of cross-species transmission and how disease dynamics are impacted both by interventions and other interacting pathogens populations.
