Parr gives invited talk at ESA 2006
BALTIMORE, Wednesday, August 23, 2006

Dr. Cynthia Parr was invited to present on the work of SPIRE at the annual meeting of the Ecological Society of America in Memphis, TN on August 8, 2006 (91st ESA) Her talk was part of a symposium on the application of graph theory to ecology. She described our work on ELVIS (appropriately enough, as the conference was in Memphis), a prototype system that generates species lists and then uses the Food Web Constructor to predict feeding links among the species. She also described the UMBC TripleShop which can be used by biologists to query semantic data and provide results in the form of a spreadsheet to be used in future Food Web Constructor algorithms.
