Spatial ecology of Cosmopolites sordidus in banana field landscapes
Abstract: We applied a comprehensive approach to understanding the spatial epidemiology ofCosmopolites sordidus in banana fields and to design of landscape strategies in order to minimizepopulation levels and spread. We integrated different levels of complexity, from individual traitsto the whole population, from the field to the landscape scale. To tackle this complexity, welinked experimental measures, statistical analysis and modelling tools. The originality of theapproach lies in the iterative use of these different methods, usually applied separately.
