Population dynamics in the time and space: models, data and application. Underlying much of population ecology are models using different approaches to describe how population dynamics change through time and space. Goals of this course are to 1) assess the role of modeling in answering fundamental questions in population ecology; 2) articulate the strengths and weaknesses of the quantitative approaches presented for modeling population dynamics in time and space; 3) successfully implement mathematical models (in R) to describe population dynamics and spatial spread, and provide a clear interpretation of the results. Course will be a mix of lecture, discussion, hands-on labs in R, and an independent project to analyze your own or someone elses data. Complementary to Biology 548M (Popu and ~

lation Ecology).
