• Invading a mutualistic network : to be or not to be similar 

      Minoarivelo, Henintsoa Onivola; Hui, Cang (Wiley Open Access, 2016)
      Biological invasion remains a major threat to biodiversity in general and a disruptor to mutualistic interactions in particular. While a number of empirical studies have directly explored the role of invasion in mutualistic ...
    • Global stability analysis and control of leptospirosis 

      Okosun, Kazeem Oare; Mukamuri, M.; Makinde, Daniel Oluwole (De Gruyter Open, 2016)
      The aim of this paper is to investigate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of leptospirosis control measures, preventive vaccination and treatment of infective humans that may curtail the disease transmission. ...
    • A geometrical model for testing bilateral symmetry of bamboo leaf with a simplified Gielis equation 

      Lin, Shuyan; Zhang, Li; Reddy, Gadi V. P.; Hui, Cang; Gielis, Johan; Ding, Yulong; Shi, Peijian (Wiley Open Access, 2016)
      The size and shape of plant leaves change with growth, and an accurate description of leaf shape is crucial for describing plant morphogenesis and development. Bilateral symmetry, which has been widely observed but poorly ...
    • A general method for parameter estimation in light-response models 

      Chen, Lei; Li, Zhong-Bin; Hui, Cang; Cheng, Xiaofei; Li, Bai-Lian; Shi, Pei-Jian (Springer Nature, 2016)
      Selecting appropriate initial values is critical for parameter estimation in nonlinear photosynthetic light response models. Failed convergence often occurs due to wrongly selected initial values when using currently ...
    • The development of a spatio-temporal model for water hyacinth biological control strategies 

      Van Schalkwyk, Helene; Potgieter, Linke; Hui, Cang (University of Georgia, 2016)
      A reaction-diffusion model for a temporally variable and spatially heterogeneous environment is developed to mathematically describe the spatial dynamics of water hyacinth and the interacting populations of the various ...
