ogden2005: Configuration for Ixodes scapularis population dynamics model...

Description Usage Format See Also Examples

Description

This model configuration recreates the Ixodes scapularis (blacklegged tick) population dynamics model from Ogden et al. 2005. This is a relatively complete model of tick population dynamics, including the effects of both temperature and the host community on tick life-stage transitions. We include this configuration to show that our package can be used to recreate existing models.

Usage

1

Format

A config

steps

Number of time steps to run the model. Here each step corresponds to one day.

initial_population

Named vector of initial population size. Here the population starts with 10000 questing adults.

transitions

A tibble giving the transitions between tick life stages.

parameters

A tibble with the parameters to the life-stage transitions functions.

predictors

A tibble with the average temperature for each day, and density of hosts over the model run. Here the host community is stable with 20 deer and 200 rodents.

max_delay

The number of time units used for the delay functions.
