Cover Letter for VOLUME 5 - Simulation Modeling comparing Population Suppression vs. Resistance risk for duration of Eradication Program
Simulation modeling to compare the impact of population suppression vs. resistance risk over the period of the eradication program is needed. Appropriate parameter values and the scenarios should be discussed with the Agency.
