Researchers at the University of Windsor study broad ecological questions and long-term evolutionary processes on computers using a generic simulation platform designed by Dr. Robin Gras and his colleagues in the School of Computer Science. The platform called EcoSim can manage several hundred thousand agents simultaneously in an artificial world. With it, Dr. Gras can study such processes as evolution, speciation, species extinction, and the introduction of invasive species. Dr. Gras will discuss this work at the Science Café.
As usual at Science Cafés, light refreshments will be served and there is no admission charge. The evening is part of a series of monthly Science Cafés – interactive discussions of important science research for the general public
