A modified matrix model to describe the seasonal population ecology of the European tick Ixodes ricinus
Modelling the tick’s complex seasonal dynamics underpins the analysis of tick-borne disease risk and potential tick control, and can be used to evaluate public health risk, tick management strategies and potential effects of future environmental change. Expand
Floristic elements in European vascular plants: an analysis based on Atlas Florae Europaeae
Aim To identify floristic elements in the European flora by an analysis of the distributions of species and species groups mapped in Atlas Florae Europaeae. Location Europe, as defined by FloraExpand
Comparing aerosol concentrations and particle size distributions generated by singing, speaking and breathing
Abstract The severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic has resulted in an unprecedented shutdown in social and economic activity, with the cultural sector particularlyExpand
Shut and re-open: the role of schools in the spread of COVID-19 in Europe
The findings underscore the need for a cautious evaluation of reopening strategies that ensure low classroom occupancy and a solid infrastructure to quickly identify and isolate new infections. Expand
Culture counts: the diverse effects of culture and society on mental health amidst COVID-19 outbreak in Australia
The authors explored cultural and societal influences on mental health during the current pandemic utilising Geert Hofstede’s multidimensional construct of culture and determined psychological and cultural factors that foster resilience. Expand
An analysis of influenza outbreaks in institutions and enclosed societies
How the organization of enclosed societies, their size and the occupations of individuals within them affect the final attack ratio is drawn attention to. Expand
EpiJSON: A unified data-format for epidemiology
‘EpiJSON’, a new, flexible, and standards-compliant format for the interchange of epidemiological data using JavaScript Object Notation, is introduced and a full description of the format and a discussion of the design decisions made are provided. Expand
Survey on the Likely Behavioural Changes of the General Public in Four European Countries During the 2009/2010 Pandemic
In order to assess the likely impact of public health interventions, it is important to predict the acceptance of control measures, as well as the behavioural changes that may occur among the generalExpand
Behaviour and control of influenza in institutions and small societies
It is observed that no matter how isolated a community is, it is not necessarily insulated from infection by influenza and that even where there are no complicating factors, their organization tends to increase influenza transmission and the risk of secondary infection. Expand
A controlled cross-over study to evaluate the efficacy of improvised dry and wet emergency decontamination protocols for chemical incidents
In conclusion, findings indicate that improvised decontamination is an effective means of rapidly removing contaminants from skin, and combinations of improvised approaches can increase effectiveness in the early stages of decontamin and in the absence of specialist resources at an incident scene.
