Infectious Disease Dynamics

“The unpredictable and the predetermined unfold together to make everything the way it is.” ― Tom Stoppard, Arcadia

In this talk I’ll discuss mathematical and empirical developments over the last twenty years that examine the role that parasites play in natural (non-human) communities of hosts. The organizing theme of the talk is the role that parasite diversity plays in determining the dynamic and geometric structure food webs. I’ll organize the talk into four sub-sessions that examine (1) The dynamics of parasites with multiple hosts; (2) Parasites with sequential multiple hosts (3) the dynamics of parasite communities; and (4) the need for a better understanding of the role that host immunity plays in structuring parasite communities.
