|ELME 2013: Metacommunity Ecology and Evolution|
ELME is a summer educational program at the Kellogg Biological Station devoted to Enhancing Linkages between Mathematics and Ecology. ELME 2013 will focus on metacommunity ecology and evolution. In this hands-on three-week course, students will learn the basics of metacommunity theory and apply their knowledge to independent modeling projects. A wide variety of approaches to spatial ecology will be employed.
"We define a metacommunity as a set of local communities that are linked by dispersal of multiple potentially interacting species (Gilpin & Hanski 1991; Wilson 1992). Metacommunity theory describes processes that occur at the metacommunity scale and suggests novel ways of thinking about species interactions." – Leibold et al. 2004Dates:
