Jakob Jeuk joined the EcoEpi team. Jakob is an Environmental Scientist and prepares our wild boar model for experiments with ASF in Bundesland Saxony, Germany. Good luck!
The fifth EcoEpi contribution to EFSA's output in response to EU Commission mandates on wild boar health covers the problem of exiting the restricted status of a region after ASF virus was spreading in the species.
Martin Lange speaks about the EcoEpi model of African swine fever in wild boar in an MDR Interview - listen the Radio-Podcast.
Henning Nolzen started a PostDoc position at EcoEpi within the HI-CAM initiative. Henning is about to implement a spatially-explicit, small scale metapoluation model to represent tick dynamics dependent on micro-climatic and landuse parameters. The work is accompanied by large-scale habitat modelling through collaboration with the team of Katharina Brugger & Franz Rubel at the Vet Uni Vienna.
EcoEpi research in media. German broadcast provided a science feature about research on decision making in parasitised barbery plants (Berberis vulgaris) published in 2014 (Meyer et al. Am Nat. 183: 376-383). Unfortunately this brilliant science cast is no longer public due to the new German PR law.
