landsepi: Landscape Epidemiology and Evolution

A stochastic, spatially-explicit, demo-genetic model simulating the spread and evolution of a plant pathogen in a heterogeneous landscape to assess resistance deployment strategies. It is based on a spatial geometry for describing the landscape and allocation of different cultivars, a dispersal kernel for the dissemination of the pathogen, and a SEIR ('Susceptible-Exposed-Infectious-Removed’) structure with a discrete time step. It provides a useful tool to assess the performance of a wide range of deployment options with respect to their epidemiological, evolutionary and economic outcomes.
