Interaction strengths in food webs: issues and opportunities
The various ways in which the term ‘interaction strength’ has been applied are described and the implications of loose terminology and definition for the development of this field are discussed.
Quantifying the kinetic parameters of prion replication.

It is found that the impact of locally spreading awareness is amplified if the social network of potential infection events and the network over which individuals communicate overlap, especially so if the networks have a high level of clustering.
Modelling the influence of human behaviour on the spread of infectious diseases: a review
Recent efforts to incorporate human behaviour into disease models are reviewed, and it is proposed that such models can be broadly classified according to the type and source of information which individuals are assumed to base their behaviour on, andAccording to the assumed effects of such behaviour.
Regulation of predator-prey systems through spatial interactions:a possible solution to the paradox of enrichment.

Many natural predator-prey systems oscillate but persist with densities staying well away from zero. Non-spatial predator-prey models predict that in environments where prey on itself can do well, a…
The evolution of syntactic communication
A model for the population dynamics of language evolution is presented, the basic reproductive ratio of words and the maximum size of a lexicon are defined and the number of required signals exceeds a threshold value is calculated.
The dynamics of two diffusively coupled predator-prey populations.

The model shows that spatial predator-prey populations can be regulated through the interplay of local dynamics and migration and found periodic, quasi-periodic, and intermittently chaotic attractors with asynchronous dynamics.
Comment on “Lévy Walks Evolve Through Interaction Between Movement and Environmental Complexity”
It is found that mussels do not Lévy walk: Their movement is best described by a composite Brownian walk, which shows how model selection based on an impoverished set of candidate models can lead to incorrect inferences.
Local stability analysis of spatially homogeneous solutions of multi-patch systems

A bookkeeping scheme is presented that facilitates stability analyses by reducing the analysis of a k-species, n-patch system to that of n uncoupled k-dimensional single-patch systems and is used to analyse the stability of the equilibrium of a predator–prey system with a pool of dispersers and of the periodic solutions of the spatial Lotka–Volterra model.
Phage therapy: The peculiar kinetics of self‐replicating pharmaceuticals
It is argued that clinical application of phage therapy has been held back by a failure to appreciate the extent to which the pharmacokinetics of self‐replicating agents differ from those of normal drugs.
