Abstract Human cases of hantavirus pulmonary syndrome caused by Sin Nombre virus
are the endpoint of complex ecological cascade from weather conditions, population dy-
namics of deer mice, to prevalence of SNV in deer mice. Using population trajectories
from the literature and mathematical modeling, we analyze the time lag between deer
mouse population peaks and peaks in SNV antibody prevalence in deer mice. Because the
