Research in ecological and environmental modelling 

computational code frog and network system

Our research is diverse but our focus on quantitative methods and commitment to systems thinking is a uniting factor. 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 our division 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)
