ESA 2015 conference talk: Managing species across vast spatial areas: does one size fit all?

Understanding how the spatial and temporal dynamics of populations vary across the landscape is fundamentally important to managing and conserving species. For example, populations may fluctuate in synchrony, or exhibit other forms of spatial sub-structuring, due to intrinsic population parameters … Continue reading
