AARMS is pleased to announce the formation of a new Collaborative Research Group (CRG): Dynamical Systems and Spatial Models in Ecology under the administration of Amy Hurford from the Memorial University of Newfoundland. This group will use their expertise to address regionally vital issues such as the propagation of invasive green crabs throughout Atlantic Canada and the treatment of salmon lice in aquaculture. You can read much more about this CRG in Dr. Hurford’s article in the Autumn 2017 AARMS newsletter.
