In movement ecology, many methods currently exist for analyzing and estimat- ing animal movement patterns and selection for habitat types. However, the accuracy of the estimates for quantifying animal movement and selection are difficult to determine, especially when data is missing. In the...
Modelling phytoplankton across many scales: transient dynamics, human interactions, and niche differentiation in the light spectrumDownload
In recent decades freshwater lakes have seen an increase in human presence. A common byproduct of this human presence is anthropogenic nutrient pollution resulting in eutrophication, a term that is becoming all too synonymous with harmful algal blooms. It is well known that phytoplankton...
Movement ecology thrives from a successful synergy of data and models. In a field where experiments are difficult or impossible, linking field data with mathematical and statistical models allows us to test hypotheses and increase our quantitative understanding of movement processes. Owing to...
Climate change is currently a central problem in ecology, with far-reaching effects on species that may be diffcult to quantify. Ectothermic species which rely on environmental cues to complete successive stages of their life history are especially sensitive to temperature changes and so are good...
The Spread of the Mountain Pine Beetle: Challenges and Solutions in Large-scale Spatial Ecological ModelingDownload
The mountain pine beetle (MPB) is among the most destructive eruptive forest pests in North America. A recent increase in the frequency and severity of oubtreaks, combined with an eastward range expansion towards untouched boreal pine forests, has spurred a great interest by government, industry...
