|Title:||Anisotropic spatial clustering of TB in cattle - the implications for control policy||Authors:||Kelly, Gabrielle E.||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/4288||Date:||2011||Abstract:||Bovine TB is a disease that affects cattle and the wildlife badger, species Meles meles, in Ireland and the UK, and badgers have been implicated in the spread of the disease in cattle. Efforts to eradicate the disease that have included localized badger culling, have not been successful. In a study to understand how the disease spreads, Kelly and More  determined that the disease spatially clusters in cattle herds and estimated the practical spatial ranges at which this occurs. We extend this work by examining possible anisotropy in clustering and the consequences for TB control policy.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2011 Elsevier B.V.||Keywords:||Spatial clustering;Anisotropy;Bovine TB;Generalized linear geostatistical models;Control policy;Badger||DOI:||10.1016/j.proenv.2011.02.020||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Conference Details:||1st Conference on Spatial Statistics 2011 – Mapping Global Change, Enschede, The Netherlands, March, 2011|
