Adaptations and ecology

We use evolutionary modelling to study adaptations and emergent phenomena at the population level. By representing the inner workings of organisms and the mechanisms of their relationship with the external environment, evolutionary algorithms permit us to predict adaptations and their effects. We also use other quantitative tools, and although many of us focus on the marine environment we are also researching birds, evolutionary and ecological theory, and cognition using agent-based approaches.
