November 2017 – Introduction course to food web modeling with Ecopath with Ecosim (ICM-CSIC, Barcelona, Spain)

A three-day introductory course to food web modeling with Eopath with Ecosim was taught in Barcelona, Spain, from 6 to 8 November 2017. This course introduced basic concepts and modelling procedures of aquatic ecosystems using the Ecopath with Ecosim food web modeling approach. Participants were provided with the principles behind EwE (http://www.ecopath.org), and how to […]

Kelpex Off the Deep End!

Within Kelpex project, WP3 team started the research cruise. This part of the KELPEX project will look at the movement and influence of kelp on deep-sea communities. http://www.kelpex.org/single-post/2017/04/27/Off-the-deep-end

Opportunity to develop a MSc thesis on Kelp Ecology

Under the project KELPEX (Kelp export: fuel for adjacent communities in changing artic ecosystems? http://www.niva.no/kelpex) we are offering a MSc thesis on kelp ecology. KELPEX is a multidisciplinary project integrating research in kelp forest, biodiversity, coastal and deep-sea ecology and modelling, to determine the role played by kelp export in shaping the structure and function […]

June 2016 – Course “Qualitative Mathematical Modelling of Complex Systems” (ICM-CSIC, Barcelona, Spain)

We organized a specialized course about Qualitative Mathematical Modelling of Complex Systems at the Institute of Marine Science (ICM-CSIC), Barcelona, Spain. Qualitative mathematical modelling was introduced as a means to understand and predict the dynamics of complex biological and socio-economic systems. The technique poses the question: if all we know of a system is the […]
