Spatial Evaluation and Modeling of Dengue Seroprevalence and Vector Density in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Background Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, experienced a severe dengue fever epidemic in 2008. This was the worst epidemic ever, characterized by a sharp increase in case-fatality rate, mainly among youngerExpand

Temporal Distribution of Aedes aegypti in Different Districts of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, Measured by Two Types of Traps
ABSTRACT Dengue dynamics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as in many dengue-endemic regions of the world, is seasonal, with peaks during the wet-hot months. This temporal pattern is generally attributed toExpand

Time series analysis of dengue incidence in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
We use the Box-Jenkins approach to fit an autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) model to dengue incidence in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 1997 to 2004. We find that the number of dengueExpand

Daily survival rates and dispersal of Aedes aegypti females in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Daily survival rates, life expectancy, dispersal, and parity are important components of vectorial capacity of Aedes aegypti. These parameters were estimated for mosquito populations from a slum andExpand

Uncertainties regarding dengue modeling in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Dengue fever is currently the most important arthropod-borne viral disease in Brazil. Mathematical modeling of disease dynamics is a very useful tool for the evaluation of control measures. To beExpand

Body size‐associated survival and dispersal rates of Aedes aegypti in Rio de Janeiro
Abstract The daily survival rate of Aedes aegypti (L) (Diptera: Culicidae) is one of the most important parameters in mathematical models of dengue transmission. In this report, we evaluate theExpand

Dengue prediction by the web: Tweets are a useful tool for estimating and forecasting Dengue at country and city level
Background Infectious diseases are a leading threat to public health. Accurate and timely monitoring of disease risk and progress can reduce their impact. Mentioning a disease in social networks isExpand

Competition along a Spatial Gradient of Resource Supply: A Microbial Experimental Model
In a set of laboratory experiments, we examined competition for phosphorus between algae and bacteria under various carbon:phosphorus (C:P) supply ratios in spatially homogeneous and heterogeneousExpand

A stochastic model for ecological systems with strong nonlinear response to environmental drivers: application to two water-borne diseases
Ecological systems with threshold behaviour show drastic shifts in population abundance or species diversity in response to small variation in critical parameters. Examples of threshold behaviourExpand
