Our workshop at YETI covered in The Hindu

The workshop ‘Ecology through numbers’ at YETI (also see this), the student ecology conference held at IIT Guwahati last week, was nicely covered in The Hindu.

Young Ecologists Talk and Interact (YETI) 2011, now under way at the Indian Institute of Techonlogy-Guwahati, witnessed a unique activity on the second day.

Instead of interaction on ecology or conservation, participants in one of the workshops were asked to do an arithmetic exercise using calculators. They were amazed at the results they got as they had no idea that these could be related to studies in ecological sciences.

It was Vishwesha Guttal, assistant professor at the Centre for Ecological Sciences (CES), Indian Institute of Sciences (IISc), Bangalore, who demystified mathematical modelling of ecology for the young ecologists.

The conference was great in many aspects, and I hope to write a bit more in detail on that soon!
