Abstract

Population dynamics models incorporating density dependence and habitat heterogeneity are useful tools to explain and project the spatiotemporal variation of wildlife abundance. Despite their wide application in ecology and conservation biology, the inference and projection of these models may be...

Abstract

Declines in raptor populations often result from the transformation of natural habitats to anthropogenic land uses, but the rate of population change can vary greatly among species. Declines associated with land transformation have been linked to loss of foraging habitat, prey resources and nest...

Abstract

Nearshore marine ecosystems are among the most productive areas in the world. Unfortunately, these areas also receive pollutants released into oceanic and riverine waters. Six years following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the largest in US history, the complexity of ecological injuries in this...
