Understanding the dispersal of Xylella fastidiosa is essential for effective management of the disease. In Puglia, Italy, surveillance is focused on buffer and containment zones established at the edge of the infected region with the aim of containing further spread. Success of this strategy will strongly depend on whether these zones are wide enough to form a barrier to long distance dispersal of the bacterium. In this presentation, I will describe our progress towards estimating the dispersal range of Xylella in Puglia using a generic spatial epidemiological model adapted to the biology of the pathosystem.
