Description

Probability of actively questing and then finding a host

Usage

1
feed_fun(x, y, a, pref, q, tmin, tmax)

Arguments

x

Predictor 1 in transitions table. Numeric vector indicating host density for each of the host species. Length should be equal to the number of host species.

y

Predictor 2 in transitions table. Numeric vector of length 1 indicating temperature.

a

Parameter a in parameters table.

pref

Parameters named pref in parameters table. Numeric vector of length equal to the number of host species. Values are the preference for ticks in a given transition for each host species.

q

Parameter q in parameters table. Used in Briere function.

tmin

Parameter tmin in parameters table. Indicates minimum temperature at which ticks actively quest.

tmax

Parameter tmax in parameters table. Indicates maximum temperature at which ticks actively quest.

Details

Product of binomial and Briere functions (prob of finding a host) * (prob of active questing)

Value

Numeric vector of length 1

Examples
