Assessing the spread of the German wolf population (contact Julie Louvrier).

We currently develop a dynamic model in Netlogo to reconstruct the expansion of the German wolf population (see Wildlife distribution Project on Team2 page). The student will investigate different literature-derived movement rules for wolves (whether related to habitat, population density etc.) and their influence on the fate of the population on a national scale. The student will work on a developed spatially-explicit agent-based model. Sound knowledge in NetLogo and spatial R is required.
