The challenge of planning for transboundary animal disease outbreaks can be compounded by the complex epidemiological interplay between livestock, wild animals, and the environment. Wild boar populations can form direct and indirect spread pathways for contagious livestock diseases such as FMD, ASF and CSF, both within and between countries. In this poster we describe the enhancement of the EuFMDiS decision support tool to assist disease managers explore the sometimes unpredictable interface between domestic pigs and wild boar. A key modelling outcome was the fusion of an existing agent-based model of livestock disease transmission with a new geographic automata model of wildlife disease transmission.
