BACKGROUND Chagas disease is caused by the protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi, which is transmitted to mammal hosts by triatomine insect vectors. The goal of this study was to model the spatial distribution of triatomine species in an endemic area. METHODS Vector's locations were obtained with a rural householders' survey. This information was combined with(More)
Bradykinesia is a frequent finding in Huntington's disease (HD), but some aspects are presently unknown; including the natural evolution of bradykinesia over time and the correlation between bradykinesia and functional capacity. We studied the motor performance of 20 genetically confirmed patients with HD (age: 40+/-10.8 years; age at onset 33.6+/-11 years;(More)
Disentangling the contribution of corridors to landscape connectivity is crucial for adopting efficient measures in conservation, but their actual role in heterogeneous landscapes is not yet fully understood. We assessed the hypothesis that corridors, consisting of hedgerows and riparian vegetation strips, are important landscape elements promoting(More)
Regionalized variables with discrete distributions are commonly associated with counts of individuals (precious stones in ore deposits, wild animals in ecosystems, trees in forests, etc.), that can be represented by a spatial point process. In this paper, we propose to model the point distribution by a Cox process, i.e., a Poisson point process with a(More)
