Ecological Network Research in Deep Time: The Roles of Human Hunter-Gatherers in North Pacific Marine Food Webs

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Jennifer A. Dunne is a Professor at the Santa Fe Institute and is Co-Director of the Pacific Ecoinformatics and Computational Ecology Lab. She received a Ph.D. in Energy and Resources from UC Berkeley in 2000 and held a NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Biological Informatics from 2000-2002. Jennifer's research interests are in analysis, modeling, and theory related to the organization, dynamics, and function of species interactions. Most of her work focuses on trophic interactions, which provide the basic architecture for the flow of energy and resources through ecosystems. Jennifer and her colleagues seek to identify fundamental patterns and principles of ecological network structure and dynamics at multiple spatial and temporal scales, and use the network framework to evaluate the robustness, persistence, and stability of ecosystems.

This event is free and open to the public.
