These maps show the predicted areas of suitability for tsetse
flies. They were produced for FAO - Animal Health and Production
Division and DFID - Animal Health Programme by Environmental
Research Group Oxford (ERGO Ltd) in collaboration with the
Trypanosomosis and Land Use in Africa (TALA) research group
at the Department of Zoology, University of Oxford. The modelling
process relies on logistic regression of fly presence against
a wide range of predictors. The predictor variables include
remotely sensed (satellite image) surrogates of climate: vegetation,
temperature, moisture. Demographic, topographic and agroecological
predictors are also used.
