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

Eli P. Fenichel, Richard Horan and Christopher Wolf

No 20395, 2004 Annual meeting, August 1-4, Denver, CO from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: 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.
