Research in the division of Theoretical Biology uses mathematical, computational, and statistical modeling techniques to integrate knowledge from large datasets across a variety of specialties. Using these tools, we study the structure and dynamics of different kinds of large scale ecological and epidemiological systems. Current areas of research include infectious livestock diseases, ecological networks and ecosystem services, and nutrient and energy recycling in agricultural landscapes.
Within Theoretical Biology there are four main research groups headed by Uno Wennergren
, Anna Eklöf
, Tom Lindström
, and Geneviève Metson
