Friday, September 28
Dr. Michael McCoy, East Carolina University
“Improving theory and prediction in multi-predator trophic interactions”
12:00 – 1:00 p.m. – Grad Student lunch to follow
Dr. McCoy is a quantitative ecologist that develops and implements cutting edge experimental and statistical approaches to address questions in conservation, population, and community ecology and that help to better link empirical data to ecological and evolutionary theory. In his research, he takes a mechanistic approach aimed at understanding how variation in individual traits (e.g. size, stage and phenotype) scale up to influence population and community level processes and spatial coupling across ecosystems, focusing on:
1) the ecological consequences of phenotypic plasticity,
2) body size dependence of ecological interactions,
3) cross ecosystem links formed by the sequential process of complex life cycles,
4) understanding multiple predator effects, and
5) the development of innovative experimental and quantitative approaches.
