Journal Clubs




Mathematical Biology



Mathematical Ecology


Theoretical Neuroscience

Biology



The Mathematical Biology Journal Club (MBJC) is a group of students and faculty in mathematics, biological and physical sciences, medicine, as well as engineering who are interested in the interface of biology, medical science, and mathematics. MBJC meets once a week and encourages participants to explore topics of common interest.

During autumn, 2013, MBJC will meet



Friday, from 11:00-12:00, in Lewis 208

Ecology



The Mathematical Ecology Journal Club (MEJC) is a group of students and faculty in applied mathematics, biology, and quantitative ecology and resource management who are interested in the mathematical aspects of ecology and resource management. MEJC meets once a week and encourages participants to explore topics of common interest.

During autumn, 2013, MEJC will meet



Tuesday, from 3:30-4:20 pm, in Lewis 208


(Please follow the link for registration information.)

This fall, the journal club will read through the new book

Post, E. 2013. Ecology of Climate Change: The Importance of Biotic Interactions. Princeton University Press.
