Our approach to science, which combines field and theoretical investigations, addresses vertebrate responses to environmental change. The three primary themes of our research include:
the impacts of anthropogenic factors on the demography, ecology, and micro-evolution
of wild populations;
2) Isolating the demographic and physiological processes
that mediate variation in individual responses to environmental change and how
those scale up to affect populations and communities;
3) Understanding and predicting how wild populations respond to management actions and conservation practices.
We apply this research to a wealth of ecosystems (costal, temperate, mountain,
alpine and polar) and taxa (mainly birds and mammals). Our research calls for the analyses of longitudinal data and methodologies that stem from demography, population ecology, and life history evolution theory.
