Towards a workflow for operational mapping of Aedes aegypti at urban scale based on remote sensing

Remote sensing (RS) applications for vector borne diseases are a field of high social impact increasingly relevant in the context of a higher frequency of Dengue, Chikungunya and Zika outbreaks at global scale and especially in Latin America. The …

Multiple refugia and glacial expansions in the Tucumane-Bolivian Yungas: the phylogeography and potential distribution modelling of Calomys fecundus (Rodentia: Cricetidae)

The Yungas, a subtropical mountain rainforest of South America, has been little studied in relation to the evolutionary history of the large-bodied species of the genus Calomys. Particularly, two species have been synonymized: C. boliviae and C. …

Potential of remote sensing to predict species invasions: A modelling perspective

Understanding the causes and effects of species invasions is a priority in ecology and conservation biology. One of the crucial steps in evaluating the impact of invasive species is to map changes in their actual and potential distribution and …

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 …

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 …
