課程概述

The course material is designed to be interdisciplinary, integrating biology, ecology, mathematics and environmental sciences. While the main course material is based on classic ecological modeling textbooks and articles, these analytic methods are applicable to multi-faceted research questions. The material builds from a single population and then extends to the ecosystem level, including species interaction, climate changes and disease as well as molecules interactions within cells. Regular modeling exercises are required (1 unit as practice). After equipped with modeling skills, students have to develop their own research questions and use modeling and data mining approaches to solve their questions. Instructors will guide students through the question-solving processes. 

課程目標
The goal of this course is to introduce mathematical and statistical approaches to study biological systems as well the interactions of abiotic and biotic components. This is a course for high level undergraduates and master students with basic knowledge of statistics, calculus, and ecology. We will start from very simple single species models and then move toward complex models. We will introduce various model types, building blocks of models, and the ways to construct models. In addition, techniques on the solution and stability of models will be introduced. We will teach computer languages to simulate and analyze these models as well as data. The course has a hands-on work component. Students will carry out modeling and data analysis exercises on a regular basis. Finally, students will develop their own model and applications. 
課程要求
Students will carry out modeling and data analysis exercises on a regular basis. Students need to make presentations of their homework. We will also teach the presentation skills. Finally, students will develop their own models and applications. For the final project, students need to first prepare and discuss their proposals with the instructors. Through the discussing processes students will develop constructive and logical thinking.
