Visit to Montpellier

Anita, Byron, Diana and Rachel visited Centre d’Ecologie Fontionnelle et Evolutive in Montpellier in November.

Anita and Rachel worked with Roger Pradel on aspects of diagnostic goodness-of-fit testing, finishing an existing collaborative project and planning the next.

Diana met with Remi Choquet to discuss extending the hybrid symbolic-numeric method for detecting parameter redundancy.

There was a one-day symposium at CNRS on the 13th November, in honour of Jean- Dominique Lebreton. Tributes included talks by Jim Nichols, Hal Caswell and Byron Morgan, whose talk was entitled Canterbury Tales. In the last case the talk traced research collaboration lasting over 25 years, and three generations of researchers. Its research focus was integrated population modeling.
