The ease of use of the programs in the application to ever more complex cases of disease and pestilence. The lack of need on the part of the student or modelers of mathematics beyond algebra and the lack of need of any prior computer programming experience. The surprising insights that can be gained from initially simple systems models.

From the reviews:"The authors have written several textbooks that became classical in modeling dynamic systems, comprising various subjects and disciplines. Now they bring an exceptional work specially dedicated to diseases and pests. It is a book that can be very useful for beginners and intermediate or advanced modelers." (Ruben La Rossa, Integrated Pest Management Bulletin, December, 2010)
