Community And Structural Collapse During Mass Extinctions
This project is headed by Andrew Beckerman (University of SHeffield) and ALexander Dunhill (University of Leeds) and is focused on linking network structure and extinction events. The main objectives can be briefly summarised as follows:
- Reconstructing the structure of paleo marine food webs across known hyperthermal events.
- Predicting primary and secondary extinction sequences and community robustness to past hyperthermal events.
- Testing the hypothesis that more ancient communities were less robust to secondary extinctions than more marine ecosystems.
- SpatialBoundaries.jl: Edge detection using spatial wombling
- Food web reconstruction through phylogenetic transfer of low-rank network representation
- Predicting metawebs: Transfer of graph embeddings can help alleviate spatial data deficiencies
- A Roadmap Toward Predicting Species Interaction Networks (Across Space and Time)
- SVD entropy reveals the high complexity of ecological networks
