THE ROLE OF SEXUAL DIMORPHISM IN THE ECONOMICS OF WILDLIFE DISEASE MANAGEMENT

Infected wildlife cannot be selectively harvested for most diseases, complicating disease control. Targeting harvests by sex improves efficiency because disease transmission and prevalence usually vary by sex. We present a bioeconomic model of optimal deer and disease management that incorporates a two-sex wildlife model and sex-specific disease transmission and prevalence.
