Niche conservatism as an emerging principle in ecology and conservation biology.
The diversity of life is ultimately generated by evolution, and much attention has focused on the rapid evolution of ecological traits. Yet, the tendency for many ecological traits to instead remainExpand

Global imprint of climate change on marine life
Research that combines all available studies of biological responses to regional and global climate change shows that 81–83% of all observations were consistent with the expected impacts of climateExpand

The Pace of Shifting Climate in Marine and Terrestrial Ecosystems
Ecologically relevant measures of contemporary global climate change can predict species distributions and vulnerabilities. Climate change challenges organisms to adapt or move to track changes inExpand

Can mechanism inform species' distribution models?
Two major approaches address the need to predict species distributions in response to environmental changes. Correlative models estimate parameters phenomenologically by relating currentExpand

Complex life cycles and the responses of insects to climate change.
Many organisms have complex life cycles with distinct life stages that experience different environmental conditions. How does the complexity of life cycles affect the ecological and evolutionaryExpand

  • 7 November 2007
I present a dynamic bioenergetic model that couples individual energetics and population dynamics to predict current lizard ranges and those following climate warming. The model predictions areExpand

Geographical limits to species-range shifts are suggested by climate velocity
The reorganization of patterns of species diversity driven by anthropogenic climate change, and the consequences for humans, are not yet fully understood or appreciated. Nevertheless, changes inExpand

  • 18 November 2008
Patterns of species turnover are central to the geography of biodiversity and resulting challenges for conservation, but at broad scales remain relatively little understood. Here, we take a firstExpand

Macrosystems ecology: understanding ecological patterns and processes at continental scales
Macrosystems ecology is the study of diverse ecological phenomena at the scale of regions to continents and their interactions with phenomena at other scales. This emerging subdiscipline addressesExpand

Fine-grain modeling of species' response to climate change: holdouts, stepping-stones, and microrefugia.
Microclimates have played a critical role in past species range shifts, suggesting that they could be important in biological response to future change. Terms are needed to discuss these futureExpand
