Ecology Lab developed by the Population Modeling Seminar

In November, 2009, the Population Modeling Seminar, led by Dr. Jodie Novak, conducted a 3-hour Ecology lab on models for the introduction of viruses into an alien cat population. Preliminary feedback from students was very positive, and there are plans to revise the lab for future Ecology classes at UNC. The modeling seminar, which includes mathematics and biology graduate students, has run since Fall 2007. The full presentation, including a dynamic Mathematica-based model, is available here.
