Evolutionary and Ecological Theory

Mathematical modeling is an important tool in biodiversity research, as it allows scientists to explore processes that act over large time or spatial scales and to reveal the interrelationships among factors influencing ecological and/or evolutionary processes.

Modeling studies in the Biodiversity Research Centre have explored the evolution of genomes, mating systems, cooperation and social systems, the history of and processes underlying phylogenetic diversification, the ecological dynamics of communities, and the impact of different resource management strategies on population viability.
