Large-scale multi-agent simulation in wildlife conservation and ecology
October 27, 2017 • 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Presented by Dr. Thomas Clemen, Computer Science, Texas A&M University
Co-hosted by Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences and Dept. of Ecosystem Science and Management
Dr. Clemen is the leader of the MARS (Multi Agent Research and Simulation) Group at the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (https://mars-group.org/). The MARS is developing a distributed and highly scalable agent simulation framework for use in research and education. Moreover, Dr. Clemen is one of the investigators of the ARS AfricaE project (https://ars-africae.org/) which investigates the coupled carbon and water cycles of natural and disturbed savanna ecosystems in Southern Africa. It aims to deepen the knowledge on ecosystem functions of rural communities in Southern Africa. This knowledge is crucial for the prediction of the feedback between ecosystem response to continuous pressure like climate change or to disturbances like land use change on one hand and to atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations on the other.
