The lethargic crab disease (LCD) is an emergent infirmity that has decimated native populations of the mangrove land crab (Ucides cordatus, Decapoda: Ocypodidae) along the Brazilian coast. Several potential etiological agents have been linked with LCD, but only in 2005 was it proved that it is caused by an ascomycete fungus. This is the first attempt to(More)
We generalize a procedure proposed by Mancera and Hunt [P.F.A. Mancera, R. Hunt, Some experiments with high order compact methods using a computer algebra software—Part I, Appl. Math. Comput., in press, doi: 10.1016/ j.amc.2005.05.015] for obtaining a compact fourth-order method to the steady 2D Navier–Stokes equations in the streamfunction(More)
A simple mathematical model, developed to simulate the chemotherapy response to tumour growth with stabilized vascularization, is presented as a system of three differential equations associated with the normal cells, cancer cells and chemotherapy agent. Cancer cells and normal cells compete by available resources. The response to chemotherapy killing(More)
In this study we explored the stochastic population dynamics of three exotic blowfly species, Chrysomya albiceps, Chrysomya megacephala and Chrysomya putoria, and two native species, Cochliomyia macellaria and Lucilia eximia, by combining a density-dependent growth model with a two-patch metapopulation model. Stochastic fecundity, survival and migration(More)
