Congratulations to Liliana Cararra for presenting her preliminary research into the Cape Fear River Estuary food web at the UNCW CSURF Spring Research Showcase!
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.
Dr. Borrett will be teaching on HON120 on Network Science Fall 2015!
Dr. Borrett is participating in the 2014-15 Program on Mathematical and Statistical Ecology at SAMSI.
Our paper "Rise of Network Ecology: Maps of the topic diversity and scientific collaboration" is now 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.
