Symptom severity affects disease transmission both by impacting contact rates, as well as by influencing the probability of transmission given contact. This involves a trade-off between these two factors, as increased symptom severity will tend to decrease contact rates, but increase the probability of transmission given contact (as pathogen shedding rates(More)
We analyzed a model of phytoplankton competition for light in a well-mixed water column. The model, proposed by Gerla et al. (Oikos 120:519-527, 2011), assumed inhibition of photosynthesis at high irradiance (photoinhibition). We described the global behavior through mathematical analyses, providing a general solution to the multi-species competition for(More)
We analyze a competition model of two phytoplankton species for a single nutrient with internal storage and light in a well mixed aquatic environment. We apply the theory of monotone dynamical system to determine the outcomes of competition: extinction of two species, competitive exclusion, stable coexistence and bistability of two species. We also present(More)
