Abstract(摘要):Ecology is the scientific study of interactions among organisms and their environment. Mathematics and statistics are important tools in understanding the patterns and mechanisms of ecosystems and predicting their responses to global changes. In this talk, I will use mathematical and statistical approaches to study food webs and diversity-stability relationships.Our models and data highlight the importance of biodiversity across trophic levels and spatial scales on the sustainability of ecosystem functioning. I will also introduce several open-access ecological databases, which may be interesting research sources for both ecologists and statisticians.
