Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Mathematical modelling offers an aid to the understanding of parasitic diseases. In the past, computation limitations have meant that the role of many factors influencing the control of disease has had to be ignored or oversimplified. Using computers, these shortcomings can be overcome. Site-specific and environmental modelling offer new prospects for the management of disease. This paper illustrates the approach of computational veterinary parasitology with an application to anthelmintic and acaricidal resistance.
