Mathematical and Theoretical Ecology in Umeå

[2017-05-11] Theoretical and mathematical ecology is an interdisciplinary field, where scientists cooperate across borders to further our understanding of ecology an evolution by building conceptual and mathematical models. In this workshop, researchers from the Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics, and the Department of Ecology and Environmental Science come together to present and discuss their research. The opening talk will be given by an invited researcher, Dr. Luis-Miguel Chevin, from CNRS, Centre d'Ecologie Fonctionnelle et Evolutive, in Monpellier, France. The workshop is open for anyone who wishes to attend.
