The Dynamic Ecology Group studies processes ranging from the level of cell ecophysiology (systems biology), through individual, population and community ecology, to whole ecosystems (systems ecology). Our research addresses the fundamental ecological processes of births, deaths, immigration and emigration, from conceptual through to applied levels, by investigating how interactions within and across biological scales of organisation are modified by environmental variation. We do this by combining mathematical, stochastic and statistical modelling approaches, merged with traditional field ecology and lab-based ’omic tools and skills.
DEG members have developed and are running a weekly “Stats-drop in session” for UG & PG students who wish to discuss any issues related to data handling, analysis and interpretation. Please contact Jim Bull with any specific queries about this project.
Luca Börger is currently organising the Biosciences Research Seminar Series. If you are planning to visit the University, and would like to present your research to a wide audience, please contact Luca.
We have jointly founded the BioMathematics Seminar Series, with members of the Mathematics department, in order to identify common research interests and foster interdepartmental collaboration.
Please contact Mike Fowler with any other enquiries or interest you have about DEG activities.
