PubhD #52: Wednesday, 15 August 2018

  • Simon Tarr (Ecology) is a PhD student at the University of Nottingham. He’s a macroecologist investigating how competition affects the distribution of species across the planet. All forms of life compete for access to resources in order to survive and reproduce but how these competitive interactions play out across the globe are poorly understood. His talk will discuss how statistics and ‘big data’ are helping to reveal these fundamental species interactions across large geographical extents, with potentially important consequences for managing invasive species.
