8th International Course in Microbial Ecology
Mar. 31, 2017 10:19 AM
12 to 16 June 2017 at the Institute of Ecosystem Study
We are inviting all who to an open kick-off seminar for our RCN “Toppforsk” project REPEAT (Evolutionary and functional importance of simple repeats in the genome).
Most demographic population models ignore males, but empirical evidence suggest that they should be included when vital rates are sex-specific. Assumptions about adult sex ratio, social structure, and mating system have been shown to affect estimates of extinction risk and projections of population dynamics. We discuss about when and how to apply two-sex models.
