New paper: Spatial and temporal synchrony in reptile population dynamics in variable environments

Authors: Aaron C. Greenville, Glenda M. Wardle, Vuong Nguyen and Chris R. Dickman. Published in: Oecologia Abstract: Resources are seldom distributed equally across space, but many species exhibit spatially synchronous population dynamics. Such synchrony suggests the operation of large-scale external … Continue reading

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

My PhD journey comes to an end: the role of ecological interactions

Ecology is often described as the web of life. Many complex interactions occur across this web, including between individuals of the same or different species (biotic) or between the environment and a species (abiotic). Understanding ecological interactions, such as the … Continue reading
