Community Network Approach to Ecological Complexity – A Workshop to Identify the “Right” Questions

March 11-12, 2015 in Münster

Together with ETT-Fellow Michio Kondoh, the MGSE organized a workshop on ecological community, interspecific interactions and their dynamics-related consequences on March 11-12. The workshop comprised keynote lectures as well as discussion groups and brought together experts from the fields of evolution and interaction networks to share basic concepts and recent important developments to provide a more comprehensive understanding of community networks.
