Representative species of Corvidae populations: Corvus brachyrynchos (American crow). Other birds are also considered.|
Representative species of mosquito's populations: Culex pipiens and Culex restuans.
|Main factors influencing the behaviours||Culex||Climatic conditions (primarily the temperature and precipitations).|
|crows||Zones and periodicity of displacements and grouping.|
|Geographical region||The Ecumene zone of the following administrative areas: Québec, Chaudière-Appalaches, Mauricie-Centre du Québec, Montérégie, Estrie, Montréal-centre, Laval, Laurentides, Lanaudière et Outaouais.|
|Period of simulation||We decided to simulate the WNV propagation from July 1 until October 1.|
|Temporal scale||An interval of a daily step with a weekly assessment.|
|Space scale||The micro-space scale specifies the size of a pixel (4 km2). The macro-space scale give an idea on the spread of the WNV propagation in order to bring a help to the decision-making concerning the larvicides treatments (interpolated by aggregation of pixels between 1 and 50 km2).|
