Synthesizing and analyzing complex ecological networks with ecoinformatics

Principal Investigators:

Neo Martinez

As research on food webs and other complex ecological networks advance, the difficulty of accessing increasingly abundant information about these networks forms a greater impediment to understanding their structure and dynamics. Beyond access, there is also a greater need to increase the ease and sophistication of analyzing these networks once the information is obtained. Fortunately, the advances in general network science, especially those in biological networks, and associated informatics provide many rich opportunities to increase our ability... more
