Theoretical Biology 

computational code frog and network system

Research at the division of Theoretical Biology is diverse but is united by our focus on quantitative methods and commitment to systems thinking. We study the structure, dynamics, and sustainability outcomes of a wide range of ecological and socio-ecological systems.

Our research often uses large-scale data sources, but what we study varies widely. Focal systems include (but are far from limited to) food webs in the Baltic Sea, disease spread in US livestock population, and global agricultural nutrient yield gaps.

Members of the division have different academic backgrounds, including biology, mathematics, physics, and natural resource science.

Within Theoretical Biology there are five main research groups headed by:

György Barabas (Theoretical community ecology)
Anna Eklöf (Ecological networks and community ecology)
Tom Lindström (Statistical and computational modelling for ecology and epidemiology)
Geneviève Metson (Sustainable urban and rural natural resource management)
Uno Wennergren (Large-scale ecological data for society)
