New Associate Editors: January 2022

This month we are pleased to welcome two new Associate Editors to the board: Marlène Gamelon and Ainhoa Magrach. Find out more about them and their research interests.

Marlène Gamelon

Laboratoire de Biométrie et Biologie Evolutive (LBBE), CNRS – Université Lyon, France

Marlène is a population ecologist interested in understanding how biotic, abiotic and anthropogenic (e.g. harvesting) factors influence natural populations. She uses modelling approaches to study how these factors shape phenotypic traits, demographic rates and population growth rate. Her work thus combines evolution and demography. Her research primarily relies on individual long-term monitoring of natural populations of birds and mammals, with implications in conservation and management. Marlène’s other research topics include life-history trade-offs and life-history strategies. website

Keywords: Population ecology, population dynamics, demography, life history theory, longitudinal data, natural populations

Ainhoa Magrach

Basque Centre for Climate Change, Spain

Ainhoa is a community ecologist whose research focuses on the impact of global change (e.g. selective logging, forest fragmentation, climate change or agricultural intensification) on biodiversity, ecosystem functioning and ecosystem services. She is interested in basic research on the mechanisms that allow biodiversity to be maintained, as well as on more applied research questions focusing on how to use ecological theory to develop sustainable agricultural practices. Ainhoa has worked across temperate and tropical systems around the world, and across spatial scales, from local to global. website
