Studies of wild vertebrates have provided evidence of substantial differences in lifetime reproduction among individuals and the sequences of life history 'states' during life (breeding, nonbreeding, etc.). Such differences may reflect 'fixed' differences in fitness components among individuals determined before, or at the onset of reproductive life. Many(More)
In community-level ecological studies, generally not all species present in sampled areas are detected. Many authors have proposed the use of estimation methods that allow detection probabilities that are <1 and that are heterogeneous among species. These methods can also be used to estimate community-dynamic parameters such as species local extinction(More)
Recent studies have highlighted the positive effects of road verges on the abundance of small mammals. However, most of these studies occurred in intensively grazed or cultivated areas, where verges were the last remnants of suitable habitats, which could mask the true effects of roads on population traits. We analysed the effects of roads on small mammal(More)
