MMVW03 - Measures and Representations of Interactions

Many plant species rely on fruit-eating animals for seed dispersal. To model this animal-plant interaction, we need a way to keep track of the position on the animal through time and a clock for how long seeds travel with it. Estimating the necessary parameters in systems where several species are involved is challenging as we may not have enough data for all of them. We developed a joint species modelling approach where species-level parameters including movement, habitat preference, and foraging, are estimated in a hierarchical way with expected values derived from species traits and potentially informed by phylogenetic relationships. Once the parameters are estimated it is possible to explore how species interaction networks emerge from individual movement and foraging decisions.
