Remote Sensing of Phytoplankton Blooms in the Continental Shelf and Shelf-Break of Argentina: Spatio-Temporal Changes and Phenology

We studied the spatio-temporal variations of satellite chlorophyll-a (chl-a) and phytoplankton blooms in the continental shelf and shelf-break of the Argentinean patagonic region by means of an 11-years time series of level 3 (L3) MODIS/Aqua …

Estimating Hantavirus Risk in Southern Argentina: A GIS-based Approach Combining Human Cases and Host Distribution

We use a Species Distribution Modeling (SDM) approach along with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) techniques to examine the potential distribution of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) caused by Andes virus (ANDV) in southern Argentina and, more …

Summer–autumn distribution and abundance of the hantavirus host, Oligoryzomys longicaudatus , in northwestern Chubut, Argentina

We examined population density of Oligoryzomys longicaudatus (colilargo) and prevalence of Andes virus (ANDV) antibody at regional and landscape spatial scales in northwestern Chubut Province (Argentina) and contrasted it with climatic variables …

VARIABLES AMBIENTALES EN LA DINÁMICA ESPACIAL DE OLIGORYZOMYS LONGICAUDATUS (HUÉSPED DEL VIRUS ANDES) EN LA REGIÓN NOROESTE DE CHUBUT, ARGENTINA

Variables ambientales en la dinámica espacial de Oligoryzomys longicaudatus (huésped del virus Andes) en la región Noroeste de Chubut, Argentina

In this thesis work I addressed several aspects of the spatial dynamics of O. longicaudatus, Andes virus and Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS) that contribute to the understanding of the relationships between virus-host-disease system and the …

Modeling Potential Distribution of Oligoryzomys longicaudatus, the Andes Virus (Genus: Hantavirus) Reservoir, in Argentina

We constructed a model to predict the potential distribution of Oligoryzomys longicaudatus, the reservoir of Andes virus (Genus: Hantavirus), in Argentina. We developed an extensive database of occurrence records from published studies and our own …
