U organizaciji Društva matematičara i fizičara predavanje pod nazivom "The effect of stochasticity on species competition and spatial spread" će održati dr. sc. Tad Dallas, poslijedoktorand na Sveučilištu u Helsinkiju. Predavanje će se održati 6. lipnja 2019. u 18.30h u zgradi Sveučilišnih odjela na kampusu na Trsatu (Radmile Matejčić 2), u prostoriji O-029. 
 


SAŽETAK: 

Two populations starting in identical conditions will quickly diverge in abundance, fundamentally limiting the predictability of ecological time series. In this talk, we'll explore how stochasticity further influence two species-competition and spatial spread. Using a combination of ecological modeling and an experimental flour beetle system, we show how stochasticity and competitor abundance can influence competitive outcomes, and the relative roles of stochasticity and variation in dispersal behavior on spatial spread dynamics.
