PAATMAPS


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.
