Spatial parasite ecology and epidemiology: A review of methods and applications

Pullan, Rachel L.; Sturrock, Hugh J W; Magalhaes, Ricardo Soares; Clements, Archie; Brooker, Simon


The distributions of parasitic diseases are determined by complex factors, including many that are distributed in space. A variety of statistical methods are now readily accessible to researchers providing opportunities for describing and ultimately understanding and predicting spatial distributions.
