Research Talk: Modeling Invasive Dispersal at Multiple Scales
by Christopher Strickland, UNC Chapel Hill

When: Thursday, Feb. 23, 3:00-4:00 p.m. GEOL 302 with refreshments from 2:30-3:00 in ANSC 112

Abstract:
Biological invasions represent an interesting challenge to model mathematically. Landscape heterogeneity, non-local and temporally dependent spreading mechanisms, coarse data, and the presence of long-distance transportation connections are but a few of the complications that can greatly affect our understanding of invasive spread. In this talk, I will look at dispersal from a multi-scale perspective in an attempt to address some of these challenges...Read More
