Effects of Causal Networks on the Structure and Stability of Resource Allocation Trait Correlations 2012 200 Discovering the mechanisms by which genetic variation influences phenotypes is integral to understanding life-history evolution. Models describing causal relationships among traits in a developmental hierarchy provide a functional basis for understan...
Game theoretic model of brood parasitism in a dung beetle Onthophagus Taurus 2009 268 We present a game theoretic model of brood parasitism in the dung beetle Onthophagus taurus. Female O. taurus engage in brood parasitism when they attack a brood ball made by another female, destroy the existing egg and place one of their own eggs to...
The Game-Theoretical Model of Using Insecticide-Treated Bed-Nets to Fight Malaria 2016 60 2015-2016 UNCG University Libraries Open Access Publishing Fund Grant Winner. Malaria infection is a major problem in many countries. The use of the Insecticide-Treated Bed-Nets (ITNs) has been shown to significantly reduce the number of malaria infe...
On Deterministic and Stochastic Models of Kleptoparasitism 2009 264 Kleptoparasitism, the stealing of food items, is a common biological phenomenon that has been studied mostly with the help of deterministic dynamics for infinite populations. The infinite population assumption takes the models far from the biological...
Variance-based selection may explain general mating patterns in social insects 2008 490 Female mating frequency is one of the key parameters of social insect evolution. Several hypotheses have been suggested to explain multiple mating and considerable empirical research has led to conflicting results. Building on several earlier analyse...
A voluntary use of insecticide-treated cattle can eliminate African sleeping sickness 2015 191 Winner of the 2015-2016 UNCG University Libraries Open Access Publishing Fund Grant. African sleeping sickness is a vector-borne disease caused by the parasite Trypanosoma brucei. Itis transmitted by tsetse flies and one of the most effective strateg...
Waste Recycling Can Promote Group Living: A Cockroach Case Study 2014 262 Animals live in groups for a wide variety of reasons. The main benefits are related to anti-predator behaviour, foraging, mate finding and/or reduction of energetic costs. In this paper we present a game-theoretical model that supports the waste recy...
