FCM model structure for one feeding cycle. Calculation of possible outcomes for feeding cycle i+1 of the model, assuming status when commencing cycle i+1 is age = i, malaria status = m i , fungal infection status = l i , with l0=0 and m0=0. Each arrow represents a probability calculated by the model. If the malaria infection status (number of cycles since infection) of a mosquito when biting is greater than the development time of the malaria parasite in the mosquito, then ‘bites host’ after attacking a human host is recorded as an infectious bite.
