300319 UE Practial Course in Modelling of Ecological Systems (2013S)
Continuous assessment of course work
In the 'Practical course in Modelling ecological systems' the students will be designing and simulating models concerning standard challenges in population, interaction and community ecology. It is conceived as a hands-on course in parallel with the lecture 300315 "Modelling ecological systems'. Topics that have been presented there will be recapitulated and deepened. We will address deterministic, stochastic and space-explicit approaches. The main themes will be 'growth', 'interactions', 'patterns and self-organisation' and 'networks'.
- Registration is open from Mo 04.02.2013 08:00 to Th 21.02.2013 18:00
- Deregistration possible until Th 28.03.2013 18:00
max. 20 participants
Currently no class schedule is known.
Assessment and permitted materials
homework, student's involvment, presence
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
The students will use basic modelling techniques as found in ecology and related fields. The presented techniques are studied on the basis of specific ecological problems. In a hands-on fashion the students will design and simulate models, an overview of state-of-the art approaches in modelization of systems will be acquired.
We will be studying process-oriented models (deterministic, stochastic, discrete, continous and space-explicit), as well as statistic-descriptive models (networks, regression-based).
