Modelling Ecological Systems is a training course in the Supplementary Compulsory module type that is taught in the 3rd year (sixth semester) Grade Biology. Its main objective is to understand the functioning of ecological systems, with special emphasis on biogeochemical cycles. This subject is related to other subjects such as ecology, oceanography, geology and plant physiology, and it provides a framework for facilitating student approach to other areas as soil science, toxicology or agrobiology. Knowledge of the philosophy and practice of modeling will be an invaluable tool during later courses and along student's professional careers.

This subject will be especially interesting for training future biologists for three reasons. (1) It provides fundamental knowledge on nutrient cycling, carbon and water. (2) It promotes a systemic vision of ecosystems, landscapes and the planet. (3) It provides practical information on models and modeling.

Course will consist of 60hrs of in class work and 90 hrs of independent work outside the classroom.

Course includes computer practicals and a lab component.
