Exercise course: Modelling of Spatial Ecological Processes (B4b) (74026)
Tu.: 12:00-14:00, AI PC-Pool
Exercise course, 3 ECTS
Recommended for 3rd semester!
First meeting: Oct 16th 2018 (see information below)
Starting date Exercise: Oct 23rd 2018
Please note that "Spatial Ecology" and "Modelling of Spatial Ecological Processes" belong together. The first meeting for both courses will be on Tuesday 16th of October 12:00 - 14:00 in the AI PC Pool.
Please enrol on e-learning. The e-learning course page covers the seminar "Spatial Ecology" as well as the exercise "Modelling of Spatial Ecological Processes". Enrollment is only once necessary.
Learning Objectives: Spatial processes play an important role in ecology, e.g. for the persistence of single populations, expansion of invasive species or preservation of species diversity. During this module, students should develop a problem-oriented understanding for the essential spatial processes like expansion and they should also develop skills to apply and develop dynamic models.
Course Content: The Seminar „Spatial Ecology“ works with examples of ecological
spatial phenomena (e.g. source-sink dynamics, metapopulations, invasions, coexistence).
The exercise „Modelling of Spatial Ecological Processes“ covers numerical simulations of spatial processes (e.g. cellular automaton models, species distribution models). The relevant modelling approaches will be applied and discussed.
