Knowledge areas:

  1. Structural/descriptive ecology: characterisation of species and/or major functions.
  2. Functional ecology: exploration of ecosystems based on meta-omic approaches and data analysis.
  3. Systemic ecology: integration of different types of data to produce functional models.
  4. Predictive ecology: construction of model ecosystems and their improvement through iterative cycles to predict outcomes, activity, functioning of clinical trials.
  5. Ecosystem engineering: management of ecosystems and control of the services they render.
