President and Systems Ecologist, ApexRMS
PARTNER, THEME 3
Dr. Colin Daniel is the president of ApexRMS, a Canadian company dedicated to developing innovative solutions for ecological forecasting. Over the past 25 years he has helped dozens of natural resource management agencies from around the world improve their ability to forecast the future. Much of this work has centered around advancing techniques for predicting future landscape change – including changes in both vegetation and land use – along with projections of associated ecosystem services such as carbon sequestration, wildlife habitat and animal harvest. At the core of Colin’s work is a software platform called SyncroSim, designed and developed by his team at ApexRMS to facilitate scenario and uncertainty analyses associated with ecological forecasting, along with an open-source “package” for SyncroSim called ST-Sim for developing spatially-explicit, stochastic models of landscape change.
