Plant-animal mutualistic networks: the architecture of biodiversity

Scientific sessions, PRBB CRG Conferences

Jordi Bascompte

Integrative Ecology Group, Estación Biológica de Doñana, CSIC. Sevilla, Spain

Jordi Bascompte, from the Structure and dynamics of ecological networks group at the Estación Biológica de Doñana (CSIC) in Seville, Spain, is combining mathematical models, simulations, and data set analysis to address fundamental and applied questions in ecology, such as describing the structure of networks of ecological interactions and relating this structure to their persistence and coevolution. He is also studying the spatial dimension of population and community dynamics and attempting to answer unresolved questions in conservation biology. He has been invited by Yogi Jaeger (CRG).
