Seed dispersal in changing landscapes.
Based on the analysis of conservation needs, seed dispersal research should be carried out at larger spatial scales in heterogenous landscapes, examining the simultaneous impacts of multiple drivers on community-wide seed disperseal networks. Expand
Are wolves saving Yellowstone's aspen? A landscape-level test of a behaviorally mediated trophic cascade.
It is found that the impacts of elk browsing on aspen demography are not diminished in sites where elk are at higher risk of predation by wolves, and the need to further evaluate how trophic cascades are mediated by predator-prey life history and ecological context is suggested. Expand
Ecological Consequences of Sea-Ice Decline
After a decade with nine of the lowest arctic sea-ice minima on record, including the historically low minimum in 2012, this work synthesizes recent developments in the study of ecological responses to sea- ice decline to assign clearer attribution to sea ice as a primary driver of such dynamics.

Scaling-up camera traps: monitoring the planet's biodiversity with networks of remote sensors
Countries committed to implementing the Convention on Biological Diversity's 2011–2020 strategic plan need effective tools to monitor global trends in biodiversity. Remote cameras are a rapidlyExpand

Some species face greater anthropogenic threats than others, and have increased need for scarce conservation resources. Yet how resources are allocated for conservation remains little known. IExpand
Evaluating multispecies landscape connectivity in a threatened tropical mammal community.
It is suggested that multispecies habitat connectivity plans be tailored to groups of ecologically similar, disturbance-sensitive species to maximize their effectiveness. Expand
Functional differences within a guild of tropical mammalian frugivores.
This work compared the influence of three seed-dispersing tropical mammals, lar gibbons, sambar deer, and red muntjac deer, on the demography of a shared host tree in Thailand, Choerospondias axillaris. Expand
Population recovery of black rhinoceros in north‐west Namibia following poaching
The dynamics of black rhinoceros Diceros bicornis in the Kunene region of Namibia as they recover from illegal hunting is investigated and vital rates generated from mark–recapture analysis are used to build matrix projection models that assessed overall population dynamics. Expand
What defines mast seeding? Spatio‐temporal patterns of cone production by whitebark pine
Analysis of spatio-temporal patterns of mast seeding across 36 populations of a high-elevation tree, Pinus albicaulis, reinforces the conclusion that populations form a continuum of strategies between ‘masting’ versus ‘non-masted’ extremes. Expand
Relative influence of human harvest, carnivores, and weather on adult female elk survival across western North America
Assessment of adult female survival from 2746 radio-collared elk in 45 populations across western North America found that annual total mortality rates were lowest in populations sympatric with both pumas and wolves because managers reduced female harvest in areas with abundant or diverse carnivores.
