Patterns and processes of alternative host use in a generalist parasite: insights from a natural host–parasite interaction
Summary Host specificity is a major, yet poorly understood, property of parasites. Generalist parasites generally exploit a principal host species and a series of alternative host species.Expand

Utility of Sensitivity Analysis by Artificial Neural Network Models to Study Patterns of Endemic Fish Species
Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) have become more and more frequently used in ecology in the last decade, essentially to resolve forecasting problems (Cornuet et al. 1996; Recknagel et al. 1997;Expand
