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 enjoyed preseting "Network Ecology: Using Math to Understand Ecosystems" at Kennesaw State University!
Congratulations to Liz McCoy on the publication of her MS Thesis research titled "Estimating the impact of oyster restoration scenarios on transient fish production" in Restoration Ecology!
The SEE Lab is delighted to Welcome Mr. Evan Anway as a new graduate student in the lab. Evan will be investigating the aquatic ecosystems that grow inside the pitchers of the Purple Pitcher Plant.
Dr. Borrett and Dr. Lau taught 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.
We were happy to host our colleague Ursula Scharler for a week in May!
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 the publication of his 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.
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.
The develoment version of enaR is available on our GitHub site.
