This work is the result of inter disciplinary collaboration between two mathematicians (Mark Lewis and Greg Schmitz), a theoretical ecologist (Peter Kareiva) and a microbial ecologist (Jack Trevon), aiming to understand the fundamental processes that control the spread of GEMs in a field setting. The study was initiated when Mark Lewis was a postdoctoral research fellow working with Peter Kareiva at the University of Washington. A key interest of Mark Lewis is the realistic modelling of movement and spatial spread of organisms. Under his supervision graduate student Greg Wmitz developed and analysed a model for GEM growth, competition and movement. Peter Kareiva's research involves a mix of theory and field experiment in the modellingspatial processes in ecology. Jack Trevon research includes environmental risk assessment for GEMs and the survival, respiration and movement of GEMS in soil.
