About Ecological Informatics

The application of computational sciences to environmental data offers huge benefits to our understanding of the natural world. Ecological Informatics is primarily focussed on and around the theme of ecology and the environment and involves the exploration of ecosystems based upon the availability of data that is increasingly common (from field-surveys to sensors and webcams). Data science and machine learning can enable the prediction of changes taking place within the natural environment, allowing for better understanding of the underlying processes (from food-webs to factors driving climate change) and therefore the development of early warning signals.
