Selection in two-sex stage-structured populations: Genetics, demography, and polymorphism
Selection in two-sex stage-structured populations: Genetics, demography, and polymorphism
TLDR
The analysis highlights the importance of sexual dimorphism and suggests mechanisms by which an allele can be favored by selection, yet drive a population to extinction, as a result of the structure and interdependence of sexand stage-specific processes.

The Newest Synthesis: Understanding the Interplay of Evolutionary and Ecological Dynamics
TLDR
Only an extensive research effort involving multiple experimental approaches—particularly long-term field experiments—over a variety of ecological communities will provide the answer to the importance of the evolution-to-ecology pathway across systems.
Modeling Survival and Testing Biological Hypotheses Using Marked Animals: A Unified Approach with Case Studies
TLDR
This paper synthesizes, using a common framework, recent developments of capture-recapture models oriented to estimation of survival rates together with new ones, with an emphasis on flexibility in modeling, model selection, and the analysis of multiple data sets.
Beyond R 0: Demographic Models for Variability of Lifetime Reproductive Output
TLDR
A new approach is presented, using the theory of Markov chains with rewards, obtaining all the moments of the distribution of lifetime reproduction, which applies to age- or stage-classified models, to constant, periodic, or stochastic environments, and to any kind of reproductive schedule.
Evolution of size–dependent flowering in a variable environment: construction and analysis of a stochastic integral projection model
TLDR
The recently developed integral projection approach is extended to include size– and age–dependent demography and temporal variation and is applied to a long–term individually structured dataset for Carlina vulgaris, a monocarpic thistle.
Estimating the functional form for the density dependence from life history data.
TLDR
A simple approach is developed to simplify the density-dependent, stochastic, age-structured demographic model and derive a new phenomenological time series which captures the dynamics better than previously selected functions.
Rapid evolution and the convergence of ecological and evolutionary time
TLDR
This work proposes that rapid evolution be defined as a genetic change occurring rapidly enough to have a measurable impact on simultaneous ecological change, and proposes a framework for decomposing rates of ecological change into components driven by simultaneous evolutionary change and by change in a non-evolutionary factor.
Coupled dynamics of body mass and population growth in response to environmental change
TLDR
It is demonstrated how earlier emergence from hibernation and earlier weaning of young has led to a longer growing season and larger body masses before hibernation, and this helps explain how a shift in phenology can cause simultaneous phenotypic and demographic changes.
Stochastic population dynamics in populations of western terrestrial garter snakes with divergent life histories.
TLDR
The results suggest that both deterministic and stochastic selective forces have affected the evolution of divergent life-history traits in the two ecotypes, which, in turn, affect population dynamics.
Age, sex, density, winter weather, and population crashes in Soay sheep.
TLDR
This work analyzed the effect of density, extrinsic climatic fluctuations, and demography on the irregular pattern of population crashes of Soay sheep on the St. Kilda archipelago, United Kingdom.
The demographic consequences of releasing a population of red deer from culling
TLDR
Detailed, individual-based data is used from a population of red deer from the North Block of the Isle of Rum, Scotland, to describe long-term de- mographic and spatial effects of a change in density, suggesting that achange in density may generate transient dynamics that persist for several generations.
