ELME is a summer educational program at the Kellogg Biological Station devoted to Enhancing Linkages between Mathematics and Ecology. This year the ELME program will offer three, one-week intensive biomath-statistics courses designed to introduce graduate students (or advanced undergraduates) to mathematical and analytical tools important in ecological and evolutionary ecological research. Each course will be independent (with a different instructor), but the topics are complementary, so students can take any combination (one, two or all three) of these courses.
"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:
June 2-6; 9-13; and 16-20, 2014
