Temporal Variation in Fitness Components and Population Dynamics of Large Herbivores
TLDR
In large-herbivore populations, environmental variation and density dependence co-occur and have similar effects on various fitness components and how that variability affects changes in population growth rates is examined.
The home-range concept: are traditional estimators still relevant with modern telemetry technology?
TLDR
This work has shown that mechanistic home-range models, derived from models of animal movement behaviour, promise to offer new insights into how home ranges emerge as the result of specific patterns of movements by individuals in response to their environment.
Assessing the impact of climate variation on survival in vertebrate populations
TLDR
Analysis of long‐term monitoring data at the individual scale is often the only available approach to estimate reliably demographic parameters of vertebrate populations, and statistical procedures used in these analyses are reviewed.
Behavioural Ecology of Siberian and European Roe Deer
TLDR
The fossil record is littered with tell-tale signs of social organization and home range use, but theories of how and why this happened are still a mystery.
Longevity can buffer plant and animal populations against changing climatic variability.
TLDR
The results suggest that problems associated with short-lived undesirable species may be exacerbated in regions where climate variability decreases, and that taxonomic affiliation has little power to explain sensitivity to increasing variability once longevity has been taken into account.
Measuring senescence in wild animal populations: towards a longitudinal approach
TLDR
The key challenges facing researchers working to understand senescence in the wild are summarized and two analytical approaches to measure ageing using longitudinal data from wild populations are examined: a jack-knifing approach, well-suited to modelling survival probability, and a mixed-effects model approach.
Habitat–performance relationships: finding the right metric at a given spatial scale
TLDR
Understanding the drivers of HPRs will inform animal ecology and improve conservation, and integrating data from GPS receivers with other animal-borne technologies and combining those data with additional life-history information is proposed.
