Workshop on harvest models, interspecific interactions and climate change

In SUSTAIN several approaches are involved in modelling how harvest will affect dynamics of populations. Most of the current models only consider single-species dynamics, ignoring interspecific interactions. In order to develop a common theoretical framework to include multi-species interactions we invite to a lunch-lunch workshop in Trondheim on October 4 -5. The aim will be three fold: 1. We want people involved in developing models to present their current state of the art.  2. We should discuss which simplifications to make to include multi-species interactions. 3.  We will discuss which kind of data have we access to that can be used to parameterize the models.
