devoted to Enhancing Linkages between Mathematics and Ecology.

ELME 2011 will focus on evolutionary ecology, particularly game theory and Adaptive Dynamics
(Geritz et al. 1998). In this hands-on three-week course, students will learn the basics of Adaptive
Dynamics and apply their knowledge to independent modeling projects using the computer
program Mathematica.

Dates: June 6-24, 2011

Hours: Mon-Fri 9-5

Instructors: Stefan Geritz (University of Helsinki) & Christopher Klausmeier (Michigan State
University)

Target audience: 12-18 graduate students and postdocs; exceptional undergraduates will be
considered

Prerequisites: At least one semester experience in theoretical ecology/evolution. Previous
exposure to AD and Mathematica useful but not required.

Format: A mixture of lecture, guided computer labs, and independent/team projects

To apply, email elme2011@kbs.msu.edu the following:

- your CV
- a statement of research interests and why you'd benefit from the course
- a statement of relevant educational/research experience, including related coursework
- the name of a reference who you've asked to email a letter of support

Deadline for applications: March 15, 2011

Financial support to cover room and board and help defray transportation costs is available. Let us
know if this is not necessary. Academic credit, if desired, is available at appropriate MSU rates. Let
us know if this is desired.
