Summary

Submitted for the M&S Applications, Ecological and Environmental Systems Track

An SI (susceptible/infected) model of spread of devil facial tumor disease in Tasmania is parameterized and used to evaluate hypotheses suggested to explain observed changes in Tasmanian devil life history.

This paper focuses primarily on the approaches used to develop and parameterize the model.
