Interpreting time-series analyses for continuous-time biological models - Measles as a case study.

Glass, Kathryn; Xia, Yincun; Grenfell, B T

Description

An increasing number of recent studies involve the fitting of mechanistic models to ecological time-series. In some cases, it is necessary for these models to be discrete-time approximations of continuous-time processes. We test the validity of discretization in the case of measles, where time-series models have recently been developed to estimate ecological parameters directly from data. We find that a non-homogeneous contact function is necessary to capture the host-parasite interaction in a...[Show more]
