Welcome to the Systems Ecology and Ecoinformatics Laboratory at the UNCW. The overarching goals of our work are
We use a variety of quantitative, computational and informatic methods to address questions like:
If you are interested in learning more, joining us, or collaborating with us, please contact Dr. Stuart Borrett at borretts _at_ uncw _dot_ edu.
Dr. Borrett and Dr. Lau are teaching a tutorial on Ecological Network Analysis at the International Society for Ecological Modelling Global Conference 2016 in May. Click here for the schedule and materials.
The SEE Lab is looking forward to presentations at the ISEM 2016 Meeting in Towson, MD! Dr. Borrett and Dr. Caner (UGA) are hosting a symposium on Network Ecology.
Dr. Borrett is recruiting a MS student for Fall 2016. Potential projects include (but not limited to): network ecology (theoretical or applied), working with aquatic communities living in purple pitcher plants, evolution in a networked community context, food web modeling for the Cape Fear Estuary (or others). Please email Dr. Borrett if interested!
Congratulations to Matt Lau on his recent publication: Genotypic variation in foundation species generates network structure that may drive community dynamics and evolution in the journal Ecology!
We were happy to host our colleague Oksana Buzhdygan for a week in January!
Congratulations to David Hines on his recent paper "Estimating the effects of seawater intrusion on an estuarine nitrogen cycle by comparative network analysis" published in Marine Ecology Progress Series.
Our paper "Rise of Network Ecology: Maps of the topic diversity and scientific collaboration" is available in Ecological Modelling (doi: 10.1016/j.ecolmodel.2014.02.019).
We've released version 2.8 of our enaR package for Ecosystem Network Analysis. It is now available from CRAN and this vignette shows how to use it. This package now includes a library of 100 ecosystem models.
