Epidemics were generated using the stochastic simulator from Xu and Madden
(2004). The data consist of the numbers of diseased plants per sampling
unit (out of a total of n = 100 plants in each sampling unit). N = 144
sampling units, and different values for the parameters `pattern`

and
`mu`

were used for the simulations.

`simulated_epidemics`

A data frame with 864 rows and 6 variables:

[, 1] | pattern | Either clumped (i.e. aggregated), random or regular. |

[, 2] | mu | Median spore dispersal parameter. |

[, 3:4] | x,y | Grid spatial coordinates. |

[, 5] | i | Number of diseased plants (from 0 to 100). |

[, 6] | n | Sampling unit size. Here, n = 100 plants per sampling unit. |
