Spatial ecology: The role of space in population dynamics and interspecific interactions

Principal Investigators:

David Tilman, and Peter Kareiva

All living organisms are spatially discrete. Each individual occupies a particular locality at a particular point in time. All interact most strongly with those individuals that are close by. It is our overall goal to assemble a group of researchers to explore the effects of this fundamental aspect of organism and environment. There have been many major recent advances in our understanding of how spatially explicit processes influence the dynamics of individual species and the structure, dynamics and diversity of ecological communities. These advances... more
