MetadataShow full item record
This study addressed issues related to a hypothetical outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) comparing a limited control measure to additional control strategies where there were limited control strategies within FMD virus free area. The central United States was selected as the study area, and the spatial pattern of FMD and its determinants were observed after FMD was introduced into the center of the area. The research reported the magnitude of the outbreaks in different scenarios having different control strategies. The first four chapters in this dissertation cover the sequence of research ...
