Abstract
Mathematical models have been used extensively to analyse and/or predict the dynamics of pathogen infection in host populations, as well as the evolution of key pathogen traits, notably infectivity and virulence. Model analyses have been very useful in identifying factors that affect infection dynamics and pathogen evolution, and in predicting their effects under different scenarios. However, a serious shortcoming of theoretical analyses is that often there is not enough information on how realistic the underlying assumptions are, and very often there is a serious lack of information on the range of values of key model parameters.
