This blog post is provided by Paulina A. Arancibia and Peter J. Morin and tells the #StoryBehindThePaper for the paper “Network topology and patch connectivity affect dynamics in experimental and model metapopulations”, which was recently published in the Journal of Animal Ecology. Global change has increased the rate at which habitats are fragmented, increasing the creation of spatially discontinuous populations linked by migration (metapopulations). The … Continue reading Connections Matter: How Patterns of Habitat Connectivity Affect Population Dynamics

Showy ornaments used by the male of the species in competition for mates, such as the long tail of a peacock or shaggy mane of a lion, could indicate a species’ risk of decline in a changing climate, according to a new study from Queen Mary University of London (QMUL).
