Dr. Simon Scheiter and Carola Martens from the Senckenberg Research Institute at the University of Frankfurt visited the MARS lab between August, 14th and 17th. Both groups are currently working on different approaches for modelling savanna system dynamics. Main goal of this scientific exchange was discussing opportunities for coupling adaptive dynamic global vegetation models (aDGVM) with MARS. The very promising results will be published soon.
Have you ever wondered about how to describe adaptive (human) behaviour in MARS? One of our team members, Ulfia A. Lenfers, published a recent paper on that. Check it out: http://www.mdpi.com/2073-445X/7/3/97
