Podcast Board

Scientific literature is not the only medium to discover mathematical models, techniques, and applications in biology. Below is a listing of several popular podcasts that discuss complex systems, mathematics, biology, and more. Like the Model Board and Job Board Pages, these listings are updated autonomously when a new podcast episode is published.

  • Interspecies interactions

    This lecture by Prof. Jeff Gore covers models and experiments of predator-prey interactions and oscillations. He begins with the Lokta-Volterra model, which has been called both "bad" (mathematically […]

  • Dynamics of populations in space

    In this lecture, Prof. Jeff Gore finishes the discussion of the Lotka-Volterra competition model. He then moves on to the topic of non-transitive interactions, what he calls rock-paper-scissor […]

  • Ecosystem stability, critical transitions, and biodiversity

    In this lecture, Prof. Jeff Gore discusses the stability, resilience, and diversity of populations at a systems level. He begins by considering a single population, and then moves on to a simple […]

  • The neutral theory of ecology

    In this lecture, Prof. Jeff Gore asks why are some species abundant and others rare? Are there universal patterns at play? And what lead to these patterns?

  • Clonal interference and the distribution of beneficial mutations

    In this lecture, Prof. Jeff Gore covers the principles of the scientific article "An equivalence principle for the incorporation of favorable mutations in asexual populations."
