Ben Collen has been awarded £300,000 by the Leverhulme Trust for a project entitled ‘Predicting the dynamics of African ecosystems under multiple pressures’. Ecology requires models to understand the processes shaping ecosystems and ecological communities, to assess the impact of the many drivers of biotic change and to guide policy interventions. In this interdisciplinary project, we will directly address this need by developing and testing a fine-scale ecosystem model for continental Africa, which captures the interaction between ecological systems, the Earth system and the socio-economic system. Biological science has been effective at tracking recent changes in nature. It has been poor at predicting future changes and why they matter to the biosphere and humans. This project tackles those challenges.
