1. Arguably the most important and elusive component of host–parasite models is the transmission function. Considerable empirical and theoretical work has focused on determining the correct formulation of this function although, to date, there has been little attempt to combine these studies to develop general insights into how observed transmission rates affect host–parasite dynamics. 2. Here, estimates of transmission rates from a range of host–parasite systems in the literature are described… CONTINUE READING
