Contrasting habitat use and conservation status of Chinese-wintering and other Eurasian Greater White-fronted Goose (Anser albifrons) populations
Background GPS/GSM tracking data were used to contrast use of (i) habitats and (ii) protected areas between three Arctic-nesting Greater White-fronted Geese ( Anser albifrons , GWFG) populations


A Meta‐Analysis of Band Reporting Probabilities for North American Waterfowl
Rmd is an R markdown file used to reanalyze published and unpublished data sets for inclusion in the authors' summary data file (reporting_rate_summary.csv).
Current estimates of goose population sizes in western Europe, a gap analysis and assessment of trends
We estimated the size of 30 defined populations of geese wintering in the Western Palearctic (including five released or reintroduced populations of three species). Fourteen populations were
Integrated population models: powerful methods to embed individual processes in population dynamics models.
The benefits and limitations of IPMs for integrating data at different spatial, temporal, and organismal levels to build more mechanistic models of population dynamics are discussed.
Density‐dependent and phenological mismatch effects on growth and survival in lesser snow and Ross's goslings
The results lend support to the notion that both broad‐scale changes in seasonality from observed and predicted warming in the arctic and, to a lesser extent, density‐dependence on brood‐rearing areas may result in changes to offspring quality or survival, with implications for population recruitment.
Global mismatch of policy and research on drivers of biodiversity loss
An evidence map of global biodiversity loss research over the past decade suggests foci do not match predicted severity and impact, and that research and policy need to be realigned.
Integrated population models facilitate ecological understanding and improved management decisions
Integrated population models (IPMs) represent a formal statistical methodology for combining multiple data sets such as population counts, band recoveries, and fecundity estimates into a single
Threat of climate change on a songbird population through its impacts on breeding
Understanding global change processes that threaten species viability is critical for assessing vulnerability and deciding on appropriate conservation actions1. Here we combine individual-based2 and

Large‐scale ring‐recovery programs could be used to estimate annual fecundity in many species of birds, but the approach requires better data curation, including accurate assessment of age, better reporting of banding totals, and greater emphasis on obtaining and reporting within‐season live encounters.
