Mathematics and Field Ecology Summer Program

**Scholarship Support Available**

11 June - 27 July
for Undergraduate and Graduate Students
at Kellogg Biological Station, Michigan State University

Kellogg Biological Station (KBS) will once again host the summer program
known as ELME, Enhancing Linkages between Mathematics and Ecology. ELME is
a course-work based research experience designed for students with an
interest in applying mathematics to questions in ecology and evolution. The
program is designed for students both with and without formal training in
mathematics. Participants in the full program take 3 one week math courses
on topics that are relevant to ecology/evolution and then apply these tools
in a four-week field ecology/evolution course. Students can enroll in a
subset of the ELME courses if that better fits their needs and schedules.

Mathematics 1-week courses:

Introduction to Theoretical Population Biology - MTH 490.431
Robin E. Snyder, Case Western Reserve University
June 11 - June 15

Theoretical Community and Ecosystem Ecology - MTH 490.432
Christopher Klausmeier, Kellogg Biological Station, MSU
June 18 - June 22
