up that the course is entitled Management <pause dur="0.3"/> of <pause dur="0.3"/> Disease <pause dur="2.1"/> and <pause dur="1.6"/> that is a deliberate form of words <pause dur="0.7"/> i think that the best <pause dur="0.2"/> management of plant disease arises if you think of it <pause dur="0.3"/> as a management problem <pause dur="0.6"/> and not <pause dur="0.2"/> a control problem <pause dur="0.8"/> control <pause dur="0.2"/> implies <pause dur="2.3"/> right <pause dur="0.8"/> that <pause dur="0.7"/> isn't going to lead you to the most economic <pause dur="0.4"/> environmentally friendly <pause dur="0.5"/> and effective <pause dur="0.3"/> solutions <pause dur="0.5"/> the most effective solutions <pause dur="0.4"/> are ones which work <pause dur="0.2"/> with <pause dur="0.4"/> what's going on <pause dur="0.4"/> based on an understanding of what's going on <pause dur="1.1"/> and <pause dur="0.3"/> only limit disease to the extent <pause dur="0.2"/> that is necessary <pause dur="5.3"/> and in order to do this the two things that you need to know are <pause dur="1.4"/> how do you find out <pause dur="0.3"/> at any given moment <pause dur="0.2"/> in growing a crop <pause dur="0.3"/> what is the best decision <pause dur="2.7"/> and the second thing <pause dur="0.7"/> is <pause dur="1.6"/> what decisions <pause dur="0.3"/> could i possibly make <pause dur="2.8"/> okay you need to know the spectrum of things you might do <pause dur="0.5"/> and then you need to know how to choose among them <pause dur="1.8"/> and i'm going to begin with an example <pause dur="1.2"/> which will probably take me about twenty minutes or so <pause dur="0.4"/> to <pause dur="0.3"/> set out <pause dur="1.0"/> and then we'll have a short break for

you to get your brains back <pause dur="1.1"/> # and ask any questions <pause dur="0.3"/> and maybe stretch your legs and so on <pause dur="0.5"/> and then i'm going to talk you through <pause dur="0.2"/> some <pause dur="0.2"/> theory <pause dur="1.1"/> of <pause dur="1.5"/> # <pause dur="0.9"/> which will <pause dur="0.8"/> explain and provide a foundation <pause dur="0.2"/> for what i've said and for <pause dur="0.4"/> the general population dynamics <pause dur="0.6"/> of disease <pause dur="0.5"/> and that will take us to all about half past twelve <pause dur="1.8"/> okay <pause dur="1.0"/> so <pause dur="1.5"/> what i want to do as an <trunc>e</trunc> with an example <pause dur="1.3"/> is look at why it is <pause dur="0.9"/> that <pause dur="0.3"/> wheat growers <pause dur="0.6"/> in Australia <pause dur="0.9"/> do not use fungicides <pause dur="0.8"/> on their wheat <pause dur="1.1"/> but wheat growers <pause dur="0.4"/> in England <pause dur="0.8"/> or the U-K <pause dur="0.7"/> or indeed Germany <pause dur="0.5"/> apply <pause dur="0.2"/> two <pause dur="0.2"/> or three fungicides <pause dur="0.4"/> to their crops <pause dur="3.5"/> so i'll try and develop this <pause dur="0.3"/> as a contrast <pause dur="3.6"/> <kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="17"/> U-K <pause dur="1.9"/> Germany i'm getting obsessed <pause dur="0.5"/><event desc="student enters room" iterated="n" n="sf0195"/> Australia <pause dur="3.9"/> i say U-K <pause dur="0.3"/> that will apply to <pause dur="0.8"/> most <pause dur="0.5"/> of <pause dur="0.4"/> northern Europe <pause dur="0.4"/> <shift feature="voice" new="laugh"/> welcome </u><pause dur="0.3"/><u who="sf0195" trans="pause"> sorry <pause dur="0.2"/> so sorry <pause dur="0.8"/> </u><u who="nm0191" trans="overlap"> <shift feature="voice" new="normal"/> <trunc>abo</trunc> </u><u who="sf0195" trans="overlap"> about late # </u><pause dur="0.9"/> <u who="nm0191" trans="pause"> that's okay <pause dur="1.1"/> you are <pause dur="0.7"/> can i <pause dur="0.2"/><event desc="passes out handouts" iterated="n"/> just

okay <pause dur="0.2"/> so <pause dur="0.5"/> this is the first half <pause dur="1.3"/> here i'm showing you <pause dur="0.5"/> that Australians won't apply fungicides for very good reasons <pause dur="0.7"/> there's a positive feedback <pause dur="0.4"/> you've got <pause dur="0.2"/> a high-yielding crop <pause dur="0.2"/> which therefore justifies expensive management which makes it even more high-yielding <pause dur="0.2"/> which means that it's justified <pause dur="0.2"/> to put in <pause dur="0.2"/> even more inputs <pause dur="0.6"/> we've got a potentially <trunc>yo</trunc> low-yielding crop <pause dur="0.4"/> which is low-yielding so it isn't justified to do anything difficult so it stays <pause dur="0.3"/> low-yielding <pause dur="0.8"/> so there's a <pause dur="0.2"/> a a positive feedback in there <pause dur="1.8"/> but <pause dur="0.9"/> this analysis <pause dur="0.4"/> doesn't apply <pause dur="0.8"/> if we're talking about <pause dur="0.4"/> genetically based <pause dur="0.5"/> resistance to disease <pause dur="0.4"/> if we're talking about the choice <pause dur="0.4"/> the management decision <pause dur="0.7"/> to plant <pause dur="0.3"/> a variety which has good disease resistance <pause dur="0.5"/> as against a variety <pause dur="0.4"/> which has <pause dur="0.2"/> worse disease resistance <pause dur="1.0"/> but <pause dur="0.2"/> is higher yielding in the absence of disease <pause dur="2.2"/> so i'm going to wipe this off now <pause dur="15.1"/><event desc="wipes board" iterated="y" dur="17"/> okay <pause dur="2.3"/> and i'm going to make the point <pause dur="0.5"/> that <pause dur="5.3"/> the yield <pause dur="1.1"/> if you're breeding <pause dur="0.4"/> a crop <pause dur="0.8"/> it's difficult to breed for

several things at once <pause dur="2.1"/> that means that <pause dur="0.3"/> if you've got <pause dur="0.9"/> a resistant crop <pause dur="4.4"/> <kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="9"/> and a susceptible crop <pause dur="3.0"/> you will often find <pause dur="0.2"/> that you have the situation <pause dur="0.7"/> <kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="16"/> where <pause dur="0.2"/> without <pause dur="0.3"/> or <pause dur="0.2"/> let's put disease <pause dur="2.3"/> without disease <pause dur="0.6"/> in the absence of the disease <pause dur="0.6"/> the susceptible crop <pause dur="2.1"/> is the best <pause dur="1.1"/> it outyields <pause dur="0.4"/> the resistant crop <pause dur="0.6"/> whereas <pause dur="0.3"/><kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="4"/> the situation <pause dur="0.3"/> is reversed <pause dur="1.4"/> for <pause dur="1.1"/> the case where you do have where you have disease <pause dur="2.7"/> the cost of changing a cultivar <pause dur="0.2"/> isn't usually very expensive <pause dur="0.8"/> there's small differences in seed prices <pause dur="0.4"/> but seed prices <pause dur="1.1"/> are <pause dur="1.3"/> # <pause dur="1.0"/> a percentage <pause dur="0.2"/> of the production costs the example i've written down <pause dur="0.4"/> is <pause dur="0.3"/> that if seed costs <pause dur="2.9"/> <kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="35"/> if <pause dur="0.4"/> seed <pause dur="0.2"/> was as much <pause dur="0.5"/> as <pause dur="0.5"/> twenty per cent <pause dur="0.7"/> of <pause dur="0.8"/> the <pause dur="0.4"/> input <pause dur="0.5"/> or production costs <pause dur="1.4"/> if it was as much as that <pause dur="1.2"/> then <pause dur="0.3"/> a ten per cent <pause dur="1.0"/> difference <pause dur="3.2"/> in <pause dur="0.4"/> seed cost <pause dur="2.7"/> would be <pause dur="0.8"/> only <pause dur="0.4"/> two <pause dur="0.4"/> per cent <pause dur="1.9"/> of your input costs <pause dur="0.4"/> so the cost of changing variety <pause dur="1.4"/> is not normally very large <pause dur="4.1"/> and therefore <pause dur="0.3"/> the continental system which we've already seen <pause dur="0.4"/> is

not <pause dur="0.2"/> able to use fungicide sensibly <pause dur="2.0"/> will therefore <pause dur="0.4"/> use a resistant variety <pause dur="0.3"/> when it's available <pause dur="0.8"/> even if <pause dur="0.3"/> there is a small premium on the seed price <pause dur="1.5"/> whereas the farmer in the high input system <pause dur="0.5"/> who's applying fungicide anyway <pause dur="0.9"/> and who only requires a small yield response from the application of fungicide <pause dur="1.0"/> will be tempted to say <pause dur="1.0"/> the fungicide's dealing with the disease <pause dur="1.3"/> i will continue to grow <pause dur="0.3"/> my susceptible variety <pause dur="3.2"/> and <pause dur="0.2"/> the example i would give of that <pause dur="0.5"/> is <pause dur="0.2"/> the <pause dur="0.4"/> wheat variety Riband <pause dur="0.4"/> in this country <pause dur="0.4"/> which is still grown i think on seventy per cent of the Scottish acreage <pause dur="0.5"/> and a substantial fraction of the English <pause dur="0.3"/> acreage <pause dur="0.3"/> sorry <pause dur="1.1"/> acreage means the same as area <vocal desc="laugh" iterated="n"/><pause dur="0.2"/> the acre is an old unit <pause dur="0.3"/> of <pause dur="0.8"/> agricultural area <pause dur="0.5"/> so and i <pause dur="0.2"/> will slip into saying it i'm sorry <pause dur="1.2"/> so seventy per cent of the <trunc>agr</trunc> of the Scottish area is sown <pause dur="0.3"/> to Riband <pause dur="0.3"/> which is <pause dur="0.5"/> appallingly <pause dur="0.3"/> susceptible <pause dur="0.5"/> to <pause dur="0.2"/> the commonest wheat disease in this country which is septoria tritici <pause dur="1.4"/> similarly <pause dur="0.3"/> # <pause dur="3.3"/> well <pause dur="0.2"/> no i'll i'll but i can <pause dur="0.3"/>

multiply examples but i i won't <pause dur="1.2"/> i won't bother <pause dur="1.0"/> # <pause dur="0.3"/> now <pause dur="0.7"/> the only caveat <pause dur="0.3"/> i want to add to that so i want to qualify this statement somewhat <pause dur="0.9"/> by saying that obviously if there is no great <pause dur="0.3"/> disadvantage <pause dur="0.4"/> to the resistance <pause dur="1.4"/> then a farmer will adopt the resistant crop as well <pause dur="0.4"/> if you can have the resistance without <pause dur="0.7"/> much yield penalty <pause dur="0.5"/> then obviously you'll take it <pause dur="1.3"/> and <pause dur="2.0"/> the phrases resistant and susceptible <pause dur="0.2"/> are always <pause dur="0.3"/> relative <pause dur="2.1"/> all of our <pause dur="1.3"/> crop protection <pause dur="0.3"/> all of our disease management is based <pause dur="0.6"/> on <pause dur="1.7"/> # <pause dur="1.2"/> crops <pause dur="0.2"/> which have <pause dur="0.3"/> very good <pause dur="0.3"/> resistance <pause dur="0.3"/> to <pause dur="0.2"/> almost all <pause dur="0.2"/> diseases <pause dur="2.4"/> chemistry <pause dur="0.5"/> chemicals <pause dur="0.4"/> can help you a bit <pause dur="1.3"/> but <pause dur="1.8"/> the <pause dur="0.3"/> closer you get to a <pause dur="0.6"/> non-resistant <pause dur="1.2"/> to a completely susceptible <pause dur="0.2"/> variety or cultivar <pause dur="0.7"/> the less <pause dur="0.3"/> effective <pause dur="0.6"/> the chemicals <pause dur="0.8"/> and other protection measures <pause dur="0.3"/> can be <pause dur="0.5"/> and if there is one message <pause dur="0.2"/> that i want to <trunc>gev</trunc> <pause dur="0.2"/> <trunc>gi</trunc> <pause dur="0.5"/> get across in this course <pause dur="0.7"/> it is <pause dur="0.4"/> that <pause dur="1.3"/> everything <pause dur="0.3"/> helps everything else if you start from a resistant crop <pause dur="1.1"/> everything else is easy <pause dur="0.9"/> if you start <pause dur="0.2"/> with a disease-susceptible

crop <pause dur="0.6"/> everything else is difficult <pause dur="0.9"/> there is no such thing as <pause dur="0.4"/> a solution <pause dur="0.4"/> a protection measure <pause dur="1.3"/> management of disease always comes in a package <pause dur="0.6"/> and comes <pause dur="0.3"/> with <pause dur="0.4"/> feedback loops <pause dur="0.3"/> like those <pause dur="0.2"/> i've described <pause dur="0.4"/> one thing <pause dur="0.2"/> leads to another thing which leads to another thing <pause dur="0.4"/> which <pause dur="0.8"/> causes you <pause dur="0.2"/> to make <pause dur="0.3"/> particular decisions <pause dur="3.5"/> if you're interested in arable crops and <pause dur="0.3"/> wheat <pause dur="0.3"/> then <pause dur="0.9"/> that <pause dur="0.3"/> example and analysis is fine <pause dur="1.0"/> but <pause dur="0.2"/> you might like to consider <pause dur="0.6"/> in particular if you're a horticulturalist <vocal desc="laugh" iterated="n"/> you might like to try and run through <pause dur="0.5"/> a similar analysis <pause dur="0.3"/> for apples <pause dur="1.1"/> where the information is fairly easily available <pause dur="0.9"/> or <pause dur="0.2"/> some other <pause dur="0.4"/> # <pause dur="0.2"/> culinary <pause dur="0.3"/> crop <pause dur="1.0"/> and there are quite interesting differences <pause dur="0.4"/> if we're talking about a bulk <pause dur="0.3"/> arable crop <pause dur="0.4"/> or if we're talking about <pause dur="0.4"/> something that is consumed <pause dur="0.5"/> as a vegetable as a culinary crop <pause dur="0.3"/> where quality considerations <pause dur="0.2"/> become more important <pause dur="0.8"/> but i will come back to that in lecture three <pause dur="2.6"/> so <pause dur="1.0"/> i've given you an example <pause dur="1.2"/> i don't want you to learn the example i

want you to pull out <pause dur="0.5"/> the general ideas <pause dur="0.4"/> by reflecting on the example </u><pause dur="0.8"/> <u who="sf0203" trans="pause"> can i just <pause dur="0.6"/> ask a question </u><u who="nm0191" trans="overlap"> do <pause dur="0.3"/> yeah </u><u who="sf0203" trans="latching"> you haven't mentioned <gap reason="inaudible" extent="2 secs"/> it's like you mentioned Riband but that's <gap reason="inaudible" extent="1 sec"/></u><u who="nm0191" trans="overlap"> but i didn't say it was because it could be sold for biscuit <shift feature="voice" new="laugh"/> in Spain <vocal desc="laughter" iterated="y" dur="1"/> </u><u who="sf0203" trans="overlap"> well yeah and because the millers like Riband as well </u><pause dur="0.3"/> <u who="nm0191" trans="pause"> yes </u><u who="sf0203" trans="latching"> it is <pause dur="0.9"/> though there's also an <gap reason="inaudible" extent="1 sec"/> </u><u who="nm0191" trans="overlap"> well <pause dur="0.2"/> our millers don't like Riband <pause dur="0.6"/> but </u><u who="sf0203" trans="overlap"> mm <pause dur="0.3"/> but <pause dur="0.7"/> but it's grown because they </u><pause dur="0.2"/> <u who="nm0191" trans="pause"> it <pause dur="0.2"/> you can <trunc>se</trunc> you can sell it for export markets <pause dur="0.3"/> </u><u who="sf0203" trans="overlap"> <trunc>m</trunc> </u><u who="nm0191" trans="overlap"> no i haven't <pause dur="0.3"/> and that's the extra factor which comes in <pause dur="0.3"/> if you start to analyse apples you can no longer leave that out <pause dur="0.6"/> wheat is simpler to consider <pause dur="1.0"/> it's easier to see the underlying principles <pause dur="0.3"/> because <pause dur="0.4"/> it is a bulk crop <pause dur="0.7"/> and although increasingly it's <pause dur="0.8"/> that that that is breaking down but <pause dur="0.3"/> you can say you just want to buy some Canadian hard red wheat <pause dur="0.8"/> and nobody worries what the variety is actually called <pause dur="0.9"/> and it makes it easier to see what's going on <pause dur="1.1"/> yeah <pause dur="2.6"/> so what were the what are the <pause dur="2.4"/> overall <pause dur="0.8"/> # <pause dur="2.8"/> what's been going on there what is a farmer doing <pause dur="0.5"/> we've got we've had a number of things that i've supplied you with <trunc>a</trunc> <pause dur="0.3"/>

answers to <pause dur="0.6"/><kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="11"/> so <pause dur="1.5"/> one question is <pause dur="0.4"/> how much <pause dur="0.7"/> disease <pause dur="1.2"/> is <pause dur="0.5"/> likely <pause dur="1.8"/> okay <pause dur="0.3"/> i put that in by saying <pause dur="0.2"/> that losses were around five per cent <pause dur="0.8"/> and there's <kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="13"/> a subsidiary question of <pause dur="0.5"/> is <pause dur="0.5"/> there <pause dur="1.0"/> a <pause dur="0.4"/> serious risk <pause dur="2.7"/> of <pause dur="0.7"/> a <pause dur="0.2"/> lot <pause dur="0.2"/> of disease <pause dur="0.8"/> in other words is there a serious risk of losing the crop <pause dur="2.6"/> which you may want to in which case people may take measures <pause dur="0.6"/> which <pause dur="0.2"/> on average <pause dur="1.0"/> costs them money <pause dur="1.3"/> it's known as an insurance premium <pause dur="1.0"/> okay <pause dur="1.2"/> insurance companies make a profit <pause dur="1.7"/> therefore <pause dur="1.2"/> on average <pause dur="0.8"/> it must cost more <pause dur="0.5"/> to insure something <pause dur="1.3"/> than to just pay for the loss when it <trunc>c</trunc> occurs <pause dur="2.6"/> the problem is that if it's your car or your house <pause dur="2.3"/> we don't have the capital <pause dur="0.4"/> to buy a new one <pause dur="0.9"/> so we opt for the option which is more expensive on average <pause dur="0.2"/> which is to pay a small amount <pause dur="0.3"/> to an insurance company <pause dur="0.6"/> they take a slice <pause dur="0.2"/> and then they pool the slices and people whose houses burn down <pause dur="0.5"/> get a large sum of money <pause dur="1.0"/> so <pause dur="0.9"/> i talked in the wheat <pause dur="0.5"/> because <pause dur="0.4"/> it's an

example where <pause dur="0.4"/> crop destruction is relatively unlikely <pause dur="0.6"/> but this kind of serious risk could modify decisions there <pause dur="0.4"/> so we need to know about both <pause dur="2.0"/> and we need to know <pause dur="2.6"/> <kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="13"/> what <pause dur="0.3"/> will <pause dur="0.5"/> the disease <pause dur="2.0"/> do <pause dur="0.5"/> to <pause dur="1.4"/> yield <pause dur="3.5"/> the reason i put yield <pause dur="0.3"/> in quotation marks <pause dur="1.6"/> is because some diseases will mean that you don't get much off the land <pause dur="1.8"/> other diseases <pause dur="0.2"/> will mean that you get the same amount as you would have had <pause dur="0.5"/> but you can't sell it <pause dur="2.1"/> there are lots of examples <pause dur="0.3"/> in <pause dur="0.4"/> horticulture <pause dur="0.3"/> of diseases which are completely <pause dur="0.2"/> the plant doesn't care about in the slightest <pause dur="0.9"/> but the customer won't buy it <pause dur="0.8"/> that's equivalent to a complete yield loss <pause dur="0.9"/> so <pause dur="0.5"/> when i say yield i suppose i'm meaning something like marketable yield <pause dur="1.4"/> and then you've got <pause dur="1.5"/> <kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="35"/> what <pause dur="1.6"/> management <pause dur="3.4"/> actions <pause dur="3.0"/> will <pause dur="1.0"/> alter <pause dur="1.6"/> disease amounts <pause dur="4.0"/>

how much do they cost <pause dur="6.9"/> and <pause dur="1.5"/> how <pause dur="0.3"/> reliable are they <pause dur="1.4"/> now <pause dur="0.9"/> this is where <pause dur="0.9"/> this course i hope where the emphasis of this course differs most <pause dur="0.4"/> from what you may have had in introductory <pause dur="0.4"/> pathology course <pause dur="1.1"/> where <pause dur="1.0"/> people tend to say oh well <pause dur="0.3"/> you can control this disease by <pause dur="0.8"/> and then there's a sort of list of things rotation chemistry whatever <pause dur="2.1"/> some of those will be completely ineffective <pause dur="0.2"/> for certain diseases <pause dur="2.3"/> or in certain settings <pause dur="1.0"/> so the question is <pause dur="1.2"/> always <pause dur="0.5"/> what things can you do which will alter disease <pause dur="0.3"/> if <pause dur="0.3"/> you take great care to plant a clean crop <pause dur="1.9"/> but the disease <pause dur="0.4"/> comes from elsewhere <pause dur="1.2"/> then <pause dur="0.3"/> you won't alter the amount of disease <pause dur="0.3"/> there's no point in spending huge amounts of money <pause dur="0.4"/> on crop hygiene on <pause dur="0.3"/> not planting infected seed <pause dur="1.0"/> if the disease is going to come from somewhere else anyway <pause dur="2.4"/> and <pause dur="0.4"/> once you know something that will work you need to know how much it will cost <pause dur="1.2"/> and you also need to know <pause dur="0.9"/> will it always work <pause dur="0.3"/> will it sometimes fail <pause dur="3.2"/> and <pause dur="0.2"/>

the answers to those questions <pause dur="0.3"/> are <pause dur="0.7"/> put <pause dur="0.8"/> in the context of <pause dur="0.9"/> managing a a growing business <pause dur="0.4"/> a a farming business <pause dur="0.2"/> or a horticultural business <pause dur="0.7"/> which has two objectives <pause dur="0.5"/> first is to stay in business <pause dur="1.7"/> which is mainly about minimizing the risks of things going wrong <pause dur="1.4"/> and then provided you can stay in business <pause dur="1.6"/> most organizations attempt to maximize their profit <pause dur="0.8"/> consistent with <pause dur="0.9"/> certain social societal pressures <pause dur="3.1"/> so <pause dur="0.7"/> that all gets a bit big <pause dur="0.2"/> what does a disease specialist need to do a disease specialist <pause dur="0.4"/> needs to know the answers <pause dur="0.6"/> to these questions <pause dur="0.2"/> in the context <pause dur="0.4"/> of their client <pause dur="1.5"/> # <pause dur="0.6"/> it mean <pause dur="0.2"/> they need to know <pause dur="0.6"/> what management options are possible <pause dur="0.8"/> what they will do <pause dur="0.3"/> how they will interact <pause dur="0.3"/> how they will interact in the system that they're looking at <pause dur="2.4"/> and you've seen the example of wheat <pause dur="0.2"/> identical crop <pause dur="0.2"/> different places completely different decisions are appropriate <pause dur="1.9"/> and <pause dur="0.6"/> the rest of the course is really concerned with setting up a situation in which we understand <pause dur="0.4"/> the answers <pause dur="0.4"/> to these questions <pause dur="5.8"/>

i'd like to give you a short break now <pause dur="0.4"/> # <pause dur="0.5"/> i am going to start talking <pause dur="1.2"/> at <pause dur="4.3"/> twelve <pause dur="1.4"/> gives you time to go to the loo and <pause dur="1.2"/> okay i'm going to start talking at twelve <pause dur="0.3"/> and i'll run for about another half hour <pause dur="2.0"/> okay i suggest </u><gap reason="break in recording" extent="uncertain"/> <u who="nm0191" trans="pause"> okay <pause dur="0.9"/> so <pause dur="0.2"/> now <pause dur="0.2"/> i'm going to try and answer the questions which i set out earlier <pause dur="1.1"/> and the first one i'm going to tackle <pause dur="0.7"/> # <pause dur="0.5"/> which is going to take me basically <pause dur="0.6"/> # this lecture the rest of this lecture and the next one <pause dur="0.8"/> is <pause dur="0.4"/> what determines <pause dur="0.3"/> how much disease <pause dur="0.2"/> there is <pause dur="0.3"/> in a crop <pause dur="2.6"/> okay <pause dur="6.3"/> and in particular <pause dur="1.2"/> <kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="14"/> how <pause dur="0.9"/> does <pause dur="1.0"/> it <pause dur="0.3"/> change <pause dur="2.9"/> and <pause dur="0.4"/> increase <pause dur="3.0"/> in time <pause dur="1.8"/> what i'm not going to do yet <pause dur="0.7"/> is to talk about how we actually measure <pause dur="0.3"/> disease <pause dur="1.0"/> i'm just going to assume <pause dur="0.7"/> for now <pause dur="1.1"/> that we can measure disease <pause dur="0.2"/> that we can get a number <pause dur="0.3"/> which corresponds to some notion of <pause dur="0.3"/> how much disease <pause dur="0.2"/> there is in the crop <pause dur="2.3"/> and that that measurement of <pause dur="0.3"/> how much disease there is in the crop <pause dur="0.5"/> is in some way related to how much pathogen <pause dur="0.6"/> there is in the crop <pause dur="1.1"/> and <pause dur="0.2"/> how fast it <pause dur="0.4"/> and and its capacity <pause dur="0.3"/>

to <pause dur="0.2"/> multiply <pause dur="1.5"/> so i'm going to begin <pause dur="0.5"/> by showing you <pause dur="0.4"/> some examples <pause dur="0.3"/> of <pause dur="0.3"/> how <pause dur="0.7"/> # <pause dur="0.6"/> disease <pause dur="0.4"/> builds up <pause dur="0.3"/> in time <pause dur="0.7"/> so i'm going to show you <pause dur="0.4"/> # <pause dur="1.8"/> actually a slightly more limited number than is on the back <pause dur="0.8"/> # <pause dur="1.3"/> of <pause dur="1.0"/> disease <pause dur="0.3"/> increase curves if you turn to the extreme back of the handout <pause dur="2.1"/> okay <pause dur="1.9"/> the first one i'm going to show you # <pause dur="0.2"/> i'm sorry i had <trunc>s</trunc> we have <pause dur="1.1"/> some problems <pause dur="0.4"/> # which meant that i didn't have as long to look for the overhead <pause dur="0.2"/> which turned out not to be in the place where i thought it was <pause dur="0.3"/> this morning <pause dur="0.5"/> as i should have had <pause dur="0.2"/> so i haven't got the first overhead <pause dur="1.5"/> the basic <pause dur="0.5"/> point here <pause dur="1.1"/> i'm talking about <pause dur="1.2"/> a disease called Dutch elm disease <pause dur="0.4"/> elms are large <pause dur="0.2"/> forest trees <pause dur="0.4"/> which used to be <pause dur="0.3"/> one of the commonest trees <pause dur="0.3"/> in the U-K <pause dur="0.4"/> and across northern Europe <pause dur="0.8"/> in the <pause dur="0.3"/> nineteen-seventies <pause dur="0.5"/> an epidemic <pause dur="0.4"/> of <pause dur="0.7"/> a disease called <pause dur="0.8"/> Dutch elm disease <pause dur="5.8"/> <kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="6"/> caused by a fungus <pause dur="1.2"/><kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="11"/> ophiostoma <pause dur="3.1"/> novae-<pause dur="1.8"/>ulmi <pause dur="2.0"/> fungus disease <pause dur="2.3"/> and <pause dur="0.7"/> this increased on two different varieties <pause dur="0.3"/> of <pause dur="1.0"/> elm <pause dur="0.3"/> two different species of elm <pause dur="0.6"/>

that's mid-June <pause dur="0.9"/> to <pause dur="0.2"/> the end of July <pause dur="3.3"/> whereas this <pause dur="0.5"/> is running from nineteen-forty-four <pause dur="0.2"/> to nineteen-fifty-two <pause dur="1.5"/> so that's an eight year <pause dur="0.3"/> run of data <pause dur="1.2"/> and <pause dur="0.2"/> you'll see that there's a general <pause dur="0.5"/> S-<pause dur="0.4"/>shaped curve <pause dur="0.9"/> with most rapid increase <pause dur="0.4"/> in the mid-nineteen-forties <pause dur="3.9"/><kinesic desc="changes transparency" iterated="y" dur="7"/> here's one from even earlier <pause dur="2.0"/> this is <pause dur="0.2"/> cotton <pause dur="2.9"/> i should have said that <pause dur="3.2"/><kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="8"/> P-<pause dur="1.1"/>omnivorum <pause dur="1.7"/> on <pause dur="0.7"/> cotton <pause dur="3.2"/> between <pause dur="0.5"/> nineteen-thirty-seven and nineteen-forty-one <pause dur="0.3"/>

so this is <pause dur="0.2"/> repeated crops <pause dur="0.5"/> of cotton <pause dur="0.4"/> planted each year <pause dur="1.0"/> but planted <pause dur="0.8"/> in the same general area <pause dur="0.9"/> whereas <pause dur="0.2"/> the cocoa swollen shoot <pause dur="0.7"/> is a tree crop <pause dur="0.4"/> those trees were all there at the beginning and they're all there at the end <pause dur="2.7"/><kinesic desc="changes transparency" iterated="y" dur="2"/> and <pause dur="0.3"/> you see <pause dur="0.2"/> again <pause dur="0.5"/> this <pause dur="0.4"/> low level to begin with <pause dur="0.4"/> and then a period of very rapid increase <pause dur="2.4"/> and the final example <pause dur="0.8"/> is <pause dur="3.0"/><event desc="looks through transparencies" iterated="y" dur="30"/> P-I-<pause dur="0.3"/>two where's P-I-one <pause dur="4.7"/> where indeed is <shift feature="voice" new="whisp"/>P-I <pause dur="3.3"/> <shift feature="voice" new="normal"/> had it this morning <pause dur="4.5"/> sorry this is <pause dur="0.2"/> classic <pause dur="1.1"/> which i should not be doing at this stage <pause dur="8.1"/> the final example <pause dur="0.3"/> then <pause dur="0.7"/> appears on your handout <pause dur="1.1"/> over the page <pause dur="2.8"/> at the bottom <pause dur="0.5"/> and is potato blight <pause dur="0.3"/> phytophthora infestans <pause dur="0.3"/> on potato <pause dur="3.7"/> showing <pause dur="1.1"/> an increasing curve <pause dur="0.8"/> over a time scale <pause dur="0.7"/> of around <pause dur="0.9"/> fifty days <pause dur="0.7"/> reaching <pause dur="0.6"/> about <pause dur="0.4"/> fifty per cent <pause dur="0.2"/> or nought-point-five <pause dur="0.4"/> severity <pause dur="1.8"/> oh here it is <pause dur="0.6"/> sorry <pause dur="2.1"/><kinesic desc="changes transparency" iterated="y" dur="3"/> put it out ready and then took the <pause dur="0.2"/> board away <pause dur="0.4"/> there you go <pause dur="0.6"/> so <pause dur="0.4"/> that is a hundred per cent severity <pause dur="2.3"/> that is

fifty per cent severity <pause dur="0.9"/> that's none <pause dur="1.1"/> okay <pause dur="0.6"/> so we have an <pause dur="0.2"/> increasing curve going up fastest <pause dur="0.2"/> at the end <pause dur="8.2"/> now what i want to do <pause dur="0.9"/> is <pause dur="0.5"/> ask <pause dur="0.5"/> is that what we expect <pause dur="2.1"/> and not only is that what we expect <pause dur="0.5"/> but how can we describe <pause dur="0.4"/> these <pause dur="0.3"/> different <pause dur="0.5"/> curves <pause dur="3.6"/> so <pause dur="0.3"/> the <trunc>arg</trunc> the the method of of reasoning i'm going to use is one that you may not have come across too much in biology <pause dur="0.4"/> it's to start from <pause dur="0.8"/> some assumptions <pause dur="2.5"/> use those assumptions to argue <pause dur="1.2"/> for <pause dur="0.3"/> what we would expect <pause dur="0.4"/> to happen <pause dur="0.4"/> in a crop <pause dur="1.6"/> and then <pause dur="0.2"/> compare our expectation <pause dur="0.4"/> with reality <pause dur="0.9"/> in order to find out how things are different <pause dur="1.6"/> and as it happens <pause dur="0.4"/> this reasoning process will also allow us to describe <pause dur="0.4"/> all of these different situations <pause dur="1.6"/> disease which increases over ten years <pause dur="0.3"/> disease which increases over twenty days <pause dur="0.7"/> by <pause dur="0.3"/> one number <pause dur="3.6"/> okay <pause dur="1.4"/> so <pause dur="2.9"/> imagine <pause dur="0.7"/> a pathogen individual <pause dur="1.3"/> in an otherwise healthy crop <pause dur="2.2"/> so <pause dur="0.7"/> # <pause dur="0.7"/> i think i'll do this <pause dur="0.9"/> on the board <pause dur="6.9"/> so i'm

force acted on an object <pause dur="0.9"/> it would stay where it was <pause dur="1.7"/> yeah <pause dur="0.9"/> and they said <pause dur="0.9"/> so if you were out in space and not on Earth <pause dur="0.2"/> and you let go of the pencil <pause dur="0.6"/> it would just <pause dur="0.5"/> stay where it is <pause dur="1.6"/> it doesn't stay whether it is therefore okay so there's a whole lot of thought experiments going on in the background <pause dur="0.3"/> if you were out in space and let the pencil go <pause dur="0.4"/> what would happen to it <pause dur="0.7"/> the answer is nothing <pause dur="0.4"/> therefore <pause dur="0.7"/><event desc="drops pen" iterated="n"/> there must be something acting <pause dur="0.3"/> to make it fall <pause dur="0.5"/> i want to do the same kind of thing <pause dur="0.3"/> i want to construct <pause dur="0.3"/> a rational expectation <pause dur="0.3"/> of what would happen in a field <pause dur="1.3"/><kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="7"/> which we can then use <pause dur="0.3"/> to compare <pause dur="0.2"/> against what we actually see <pause dur="2.0"/>

okay <pause dur="2.0"/> and so far i've shown <pause dur="0.4"/> that <pause dur="1.2"/> i've got <pause dur="1.4"/> what i would expect <pause dur="0.4"/> is that <pause dur="0.3"/><kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="7"/> the log <pause dur="1.6"/> of the population <pause dur="3.5"/> will <pause dur="0.6"/> increase in a straight line <pause dur="1.1"/> initially <pause dur="1.6"/> because i have <pause dur="0.2"/> exponential growth <pause dur="3.3"/> but <pause dur="0.4"/> of course <pause dur="0.3"/> once disease <pause dur="0.3"/> is <pause dur="0.4"/> really common <pause dur="3.9"/> lots of these spores <pause dur="0.9"/> will start to fall <pause dur="0.5"/> on tissue <pause dur="0.2"/> which is already infected <pause dur="3.4"/> yeah <pause dur="0.5"/> is that <pause dur="1.1"/> and <pause dur="0.4"/> one way to see what effect <pause dur="0.4"/> we would expect that to have <pause dur="0.8"/> is to say okay imagine a field which is half infected <pause dur="0.7"/> half diseased <pause dur="1.7"/> the diseased material produces spores <pause dur="0.4"/> or vectors <pause dur="0.7"/> which fall randomly all over the field <pause dur="4.0"/><kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="2"/> half of those <pause dur="0.2"/> will therefore fall on infected material <pause dur="2.4"/> and won't <pause dur="0.2"/> produce any new disease <pause dur="2.8"/> so the rate of increase of the disease <pause dur="0.9"/> will <pause dur="1.1"/> decrease <pause dur="0.6"/> in proportion <pause dur="1.7"/> to the diseased <pause dur="0.4"/> fraction <pause dur="0.2"/> of the field <pause dur="2.7"/> as disease becomes <pause dur="2.4"/> if it's increasing <kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="10"/> exponentially <pause dur="3.3"/> as <pause dur="0.3"/> it becomes commoner <pause dur="0.9"/> the rate of that exponential will fall off <pause dur="0.5"/> until <pause dur="0.3"/> when almost the whole field is infected <pause dur="0.5"/> almost no spores will be able to cause any new disease <pause dur="0.2"/> because they can't find a host <pause dur="2.2"/> so the shape we expect is something

that starts off exponential <pause dur="0.6"/> and then <pause dur="0.3"/> turns over <pause dur="2.3"/> and <pause dur="1.1"/> a little mathematics <pause dur="1.4"/> which might be a dangerous thing but a little mathematics <pause dur="1.1"/> shows <pause dur="0.6"/> that <pause dur="5.8"/> the <pause dur="0.7"/> logarithm <pause dur="1.8"/> of the healthy fraction <pause dur="1.1"/> of the diseased fraction over the healthy fraction <pause dur="1.3"/> increases <pause dur="0.2"/> smoothly <pause dur="0.3"/> with <pause dur="0.3"/> time <pause dur="1.0"/> that's <pause dur="0.3"/> equation one on your handout <pause dur="10.3"/> so <pause dur="2.9"/> if <pause dur="2.7"/><kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="1:14"/> nothing changes <pause dur="5.6"/> in <pause dur="0.5"/> the <pause dur="0.6"/> host-<pause dur="1.7"/>pathogen <pause dur="3.2"/> relation <pause dur="3.7"/> and <pause dur="1.0"/> if <pause dur="0.7"/> spores <pause dur="0.9"/> or vectors <pause dur="1.6"/> are evenly <pause dur="1.8"/> distributed <pause dur="3.6"/> over the whole area <pause dur="1.0"/> we expect <pause dur="2.7"/> the logarithm <pause dur="1.7"/> of the <pause dur="0.5"/> diseased <pause dur="2.0"/> fraction <pause dur="3.3"/> over the healthy <pause dur="2.0"/> fraction <pause dur="3.9"/> to increase <pause dur="2.6"/> steadily <pause dur="3.0"/> with <pause dur="1.6"/> time <pause dur="1.4"/> okay <pause dur="0.5"/> and that's written out in mathematical symbols <pause dur="0.5"/> as <pause dur="0.2"/> equation one <pause dur="2.9"/> and this thing here <pause dur="3.7"/> has a name <pause dur="0.3"/> because we use it quite commonly <pause dur="1.9"/> <kinesic desc="writes on board" iterated="y" dur="17"/> it's called <pause dur="0.6"/> the logit <pause dur="1.4"/> not the log <pause dur="0.4"/> but the logit <pause dur="0.8"/> of <pause dur="0.7"/> the <pause dur="0.7"/> diseased <pause dur="2.1"/> fraction <pause dur="3.8"/> okay <pause dur="1.9"/> now <pause dur="1.3"/> what i've done there <pause dur="0.3"/> is just <pause dur="0.3"/> argue <pause dur="5.6"/> informally <pause dur="0.3"/> and then <pause dur="0.6"/> if you wish <pause dur="0.2"/> you can see what the formal mathematical argument is <pause dur="1.6"/> what <pause dur="0.6"/> should happen <pause dur="0.7"/> if <pause dur="0.2"/> certain conditions hold <pause dur="4.7"/> now <pause dur="2.7"/><kinesic desc="changes transparency" iterated="y" dur="2"/>
