Population Dynamics of Plant and Pollinator Communities: Stability Reconsidered
Plant-pollinator networks are systems of outstanding ecological and economic importance. A particularly intriguing aspect of these systems is their high diversity. However, earlier studies haveExpand

The evolution of activity breaks in the nest cycle of annual eusocial bees: a model of delayed exponential growth
BackgroundSocial insects show considerable variability not only in social organisation but also in the temporal pattern of nest cycles. In annual eusocial sweat bees, nest cycles typically consist ofExpand

The effect of translocation on movement behaviour—A test of the assumptions of behavioural studies
Animal movement behaviour is intensively investigated with capture-mark-recapture studies. For the analysis of such experiments, the influence of marking technique, handling and translocation ofExpand

Habitat suitability models for the conservation of thermophilic grasshoppers and bush crickets—simple or complex?
One goal of conservation biology is the assessment of effects of land use change on species distribution. One approach for identifying the factors, which determine habitat suitability for a speciesExpand

On the elasticity of range limits during periods of expansion.
Dispersal is known to play a crucial role in the formation of species' ranges. Recent studies demonstrate that dispersiveness increases rapidly during the range expansion of species due to a fitnessExpand

Specialization and phenological synchrony of plant-pollinator interactions along an altitudinal gradient.
One of the most noticeable effects of anthropogenic climate change is the shift in timing of seasonal events towards earlier occurrence. The high degree of variation in species' phenological shiftsExpand

Gender-Specific Emigration Decisions Sensitive to Local Male and Female Density
Increasing interest is directed on understanding how individuals utilize information to come to dispersal decisions. We assume individuals base emigration decisions on male and female density inExpand

When Can Plant-Pollinator Interactions Promote Plant Diversity?
In the light of rapid losses of biodiversity worldwide, it has become more important than ever to study the factors that ensure the continued existence of diverse ecological communities. Whereas theExpand

Biased dispersal of Metrioptera bicolor, a wing dimorphic bush‐cricket
In the highly fragmented landscape of central Europe, dispersal is of particular importance as it determines the long‐term survival of animal populations. Dispersal not only secures theExpand

ASSORTATIVE MATING COUNTERACTS THE EVOLUTION OF DISPERSAL POLYMORPHISMS
Polymorphic dispersal strategies are found in many plant and animal species. An important question is how the genetic variation underlying such polymorphisms is maintained. Numerous mechanisms haveExpand
