Congratulations to Jiawei Liu, E&E PhD candidate and second author on Stochasticity and Infectious Disease Dynamics: Density and Weather Effects on a Fungal Insect Pathogen, which was published in the March 2020 edition of The American Naturalist.

As noted in the paper's abstract, their "work shows that host-abundance thresholds may be important even if weather strongly affects transmission, suggesting that epidemiological models that allow for weather have an important role to play in understanding animal pathogens."

Kudos to Jiawei and the team in the Dwyer lab for this important contribution!
