Summary of Project:
Social transmission of behavior and disease can take many forms and may deeply affect an individual’s fitness. In this project, we are interested to investigate the dynamic of infectious agent transmission in animal networks in order to determine what conditions and network properties are infectious organisms expected to spread freely or be tightly constrained. Theoretical social network will be created in order to have a set of efficiency values going from 0 (inefficient network) to 1 (most efficient network). Then, we are going to test the different networks by changing either the number of group members or their properties (such as modularity and density) to understand how disease is transmitted between individuals. Our findings will not only provide information concerning the mechanisms of social transmission within a group, but will also show how social network structures and dynamic vary depending on different factors such as group composition and size, providing further information of how animals, including humans, lead with the benefits and costs of group-living.
Keywords: social relationship, social network analysis, network efficiency, modelling
