What is diversity? How do we measure it? This event will bring together
life scientists and mathematicians to advance our understanding of
diversity and its measurement.
1. Develop diversity measures that are sensitive to species similarity.
2. Diversity of partitioned communities: the mathematics of within-group and
between-group diversity, including when inter-species similarity is taken
3. What are the implications of a mathematically rigorous theory of
diversity and differentiation for conservation biology, ecology,
evolutionary theory, epidemiology and population genetics?
4. What can mathematicians learn from recent advances in diversity
