300315 VO Modelling Ecological Systems (2013S)
In the course 'Modelling ecological systems' the students will be introduced to standard modelling techniques and how they are applied to challenges in population, interaction and community ecology. We will study process-oriented, as well as descriptive-statistical models.
The main topics will be 'growth', 'interactions', 'patterns and self-organisation' and 'networks'.
Currently no class schedule is known.
Assessment and permitted materials
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
The students will be introduced to basic modelling techniques as used in ecology and related fields. The presented techniques are studied on the basis of specific ecological problems. Different approaches for a standing question are illustrated. We will be studying process-oriented models (deterministic, stochastic, discrete, continous and space-explicit), as well as statistic-descriptive models (networks, regression-based).
