Change in Host Behavior and its Impact on the Co-evolution of Dengue

The joint evolutionary dynamics of dengue strains are poorly understood despite its high prevalence around the world. Two dengue strains are put in competition in a population where behavioral changes can affect the probability of infection. The destabilizing dynamic effect of even "minor" behavioral changes is discussed and their role in dengue control is explained.
