Climate anomalies and epidemics in South America at the end of the Colonial Period
Climate is one of the most of influential natural factors on society and economy. One of the consequences of climate anomalies is the emergence of diseases and epidemics, especially in agrarian societies. The current concern ...
Comparison of Argentinean Saint Louis Encephalitis Virus Non-Epidemic and Epidemic Strain Infections in an Avian Model
(Public Library of Science, 2011-05)
St. Louis encephalitis virus (SLEV, Flavivirus, Flaviviridae) is an emerging mosquito-borne pathogen in South America, with human SLEV encephalitis cases reported in Argentina and Brazil. Genotype III strains of SLEV were ...
Exploring the threshold of epidemic spreading for a stochastic SIR model with local and global contacts
(Elsevier Science, 2019-10)
The spread of an epidemic process is considered in the context of a spatial SIR stochastic model that includes a parameter 0 ≤ p ≤ 1 that assigns weights p and 1−p to global and local infective contacts respectively. The ...

Trichothecene genotypes, chemotypes and zearalenone production by Fusarium graminearum species complex strains causing Fusarium head blight in Argentina during an epidemic and non-epidemic season
(Sociedade Brasileira de Fitopatologia, 2017-06)
Members of Fusarium graminearum species complex are the main pathogens associated with Fusarium head blight (FHB) in wheat in Argentina, which produce trichothecene mycotoxins that are found in wheat grain and by-products. ...
Epidemic spreading with awareness and different timescales in multiplex networks
(American Physical Society, 2019-09)
One of the major issues in theoretical modeling of epidemic spreading is the development of methods to control the transmission of an infectious agent. Human behavior plays a fundamental role in the spreading dynamics and ...
How epidemics devastated the indigenous people of the Americas
(American Association of Physical Anthropologists, 2018)
