A movement ecology paradigm for unifying organismal movement research
A conceptual framework depicting the interplay among four basic mechanistic components of organismal movement is introduced, providing a basis for hypothesis generation and a vehicle facilitating the understanding of the causes, mechanisms, and spatiotemporal patterns of movement and their role in various ecological and evolutionary processes.
Pattern-Oriented Modeling of Agent-Based Complex Systems: Lessons from Ecology
This paper argues that recent advances in ecological modeling have come together in a general strategy that provides a unifying framework for decoding the internal organization of agent-based complex systems and may lead toward unifying algorithmic theories of the relation between adaptive behavior and system complexity.
Approaching a state shift in Earth’s biosphere
Evidence that the global ecosystem as a whole is approaching a planetary-scale critical transition as a result of human influence is reviewed, highlighting the need to improve biological forecasting by detecting early warning signs of critical transitions.
Spatial organization, group living and ecological correlates in low‐density populations of Eurasian badgers, Meles meles
An integrative hypothesis is proposed to explain not only group formation but also interpopulation variability in the social organization of badgers within ecological, demographic and behavioural constraints and in the light of current theory on delayed dispersal.
Endangered Species Constrained by Natural and Human Factors: the Case of Brown Bears in Northern Spain
Abstract: We developed a conceptual framework for classifying habitat quality that requires the construction of separate habitat models for each key demographic feature; the framework can be applied
Trends and missing parts in the study of movement ecology
Most studies simply measured and described the movement of organisms without reference to ecological or internal factors, and the most frequently studied part of the framework was the link between external factors and motion capacity.
Spatial ecology of Iberian lynx and abundance of European rabbits in southwestern Spain
Spatial ecology of Iberian lynx and the abundance of its main prey, the European rabbit, were studied in southwestern Spain from December 1992 to December 1996 when a decline in rabbit populations occurred to relate spatial ecology of lynx to rabbit abundance, water availability, and protection from human disturbance.
Assessing the suitability of central European landscapes for the reintroduction of Eurasian lynx
Summary 1 After an absence of almost 100 years, the Eurasian lynx Lynx lynx is slowly recovering in Germany along the German–Czech border. Additionally, many reintroduction schemes have been
Fragmented landscapes, road mortality and patch connectivity: modelling influences on the dispersal of Eurasian lynx
Summary 1. Although many reintroduction schemes for the Eurasian lynx Lynx lynx in Germany have been discussed, the implications of connectivity between suitable patches have not been assessed. 2. We
