Ecological Dynamics Across the Arctic Associated with Recent Climate Change
Assessing the Arctic The Arctic is experiencing some of the most rapid climate change currently under way across the globe, but consequent ecological responses have not been widely reported. At theExpand

Collapsing population cycles.
During the past two decades population cycles in voles, grouse and insects have been fading out in Europe. Here, we discuss the cause and implication of these changes. Several lines of evidence nowExpand

  • 1 May 1990
The temporal pattern of breeding in populations is often characterized by a pronounced temporal clustering of births, flowering or seed set. It has long been suspected that this phenomenon is notExpand

Climate change and outbreaks of the geometrids Operophtera brumata and Epirrita autumnata in subarctic birch forest: evidence of a recent outbreak range expansion.
1. Range expansions mediated by recent climate warming have been documented for many insect species, including some important forest pests. However, whether climate change also influences theExpand

  • 1 October 1990
The logic behind the hypothesis explaining reproductive synchrony as a strategy for reducing the predation of vulnerable offspring (predator swamping) is evaluated by means of two simple models.Expand

Analysing diet of small herbivores: the efficiency of DNA barcoding coupled with high-throughput pyrosequencing for deciphering the composition of complex plant mixtures
BackgroundIn order to understand the role of herbivores in trophic webs, it is essential to know what they feed on. Diet analysis is, however, a challenge in many small herbivores with a secretiveExpand

Climate Events Synchronize the Dynamics of a Resident Vertebrate Community in the High Arctic
All Together Now Environmental drivers, such as extreme weather events, impact population dynamics and can synchronize such dynamics across populations within a species. Given that many speciesExpand
