Ecological Inspirations: Mark Rees

Mark is interested in a wide range of ecological and evolutionary problems. He uses a range of approaches from simple analytical models, through to evolutionary stable strategy models for the evolution of plant traits and more complex structured models, in particular integral projection models. He is also interested in statistical estimation problems related to the…

Ecological Inspirations: Roberto Salguero-Gómez
