OvCWD: An agent‐based modeling framework for informing chronic wasting disease management in white‐tailed deer populations


Wildlife disease management is vital but challenging due to complex host population dynamics. We have developed a novel modeling tool that can help managers better understand complex disease dynamics & thereby implement effective control strategies to mitigate the threats posed by wildlife diseases like chronic wasting disease (CWD).
