Ecological Networks & Global Change

Welcome

Welcome to the Ecological Networks and Global Change research group (EcoNetGC). We investigate the structure, dynamics and functioning of networks of species interactions, and the consequences of different components of global change on them. We study different network types (predator-prey, host-parasitoid, free-living mutualists, and bacterial symbionts and their hosts) and global change components (climate change, habitat loss). To answer our questions we use a multidisciplinar perspective, using concepts, models and techniques from ecology, evolution, physics, genetics, or molecular biology. We adopt an integrative approach, combining mathematical and simulation models, analyses of large datasets, and manipulative experiments on mesocosms.

Highlights

Jose M. Montoya is a visiting researcher of the new launched Grand Challenges in Ecosystems and the Environment Initiative, at Imperial College London (Silwood park)

 

We came back from the decadal Food Web symposium! Jose gave a plenary and Miguel and Nuria really enjoyed it.

 

Our new paper on the specificity and temporal variation in host-microbe symbiotic interaction networks

 

See our new paper on Ecology Letters how disturbances change the relationships between different components of community stability
