Black swans—statistically improbable events with profound consequences—happen more often than expected in financial, social, and natural systems. Our work demonstrates the rare but systematic presence of black-swan events in animal populations around the world (mostly birds, mammals, and insects). These events are predominantly downward, implying that unexpected population .

I graduated from Brown University in Before joining the Long Lab, I worked on projects studying the shifting continental distribution of flora in response to changing climate, elk response to catastrophic fire events, prairie dog population dynamics after plague outbreaks, and large . Using a long‐term data set (17–22 yr) obtained from a large ( km 2) study region in arid central Australia, we tested firstly for regional synchrony in annual rainfall and the dynamics of five small mammal species across nine widely separated sites. Using Moran's theorem, we predicted that the spatial correlation between the regional.
Deep understanding of population dynamics is required for calculation of generation length or for performing population viability analysis to assess species extinction risk. We found that age- or stage-specific birth and death rates are available for only % of . Spatially synchronous population dynamics have been much studied in high latitude environments where extrinsic factors such as severe winter weather and mobile predators may operate over large spatial scales (Merritt , Krebs ). In other environments, however, the spatial sub‐structuring of populations may be less predictable, with.

The book helped provide identity and coherence to an emerging field. We conducted an extensive, comparative analysis of population dynamics in large and small mammals to test our hypothesis, using seven population parameters to describe general dynamic patterns for 23 (14 species) time series of observations of abundance of large mammals and 38 (21 species) time series for small by: 6.

Therefore, the effects of weather and population density on vital rates (e.g., survival rate and recruitment rate) are critical to elucidate the ecological and demographic mechanisms underlying the dynamics of mammal populations in fluctuating environments (Coulson et al.,Krebs, ).
Most species of small mammals have a cyclic profile of population dynamics . The population size and demographic structure dynamics is influenced by many factors.
Population Dynamics Of Small Mammals In Virginia Forests 1. Population Dynamics of Small Mammals in Virginia Forests: Testing the Impacts of Weather, Deer, Acorns, and Shrub Cover By: Taylor Bernheim, Menghan Fu, Sebastian Rowland, and Andrew TsaiAbstract Small rodent communities play an important role in forest ecosystems as consumers ofvegetation and as prey for birds and larger mammals.
Here, we perform a comparative analysis of 12 taxonomic groups across a large spatial scale (Canada), using data on Canadian species at risk: amphibians, arthropods, birds, freshwater fishes, lichens, marine fishes, marine mammals, molluscs, mosses, reptiles, terrestrial mammals, and vascular plants.
About this book. The ability of small mammals to exploit environmental resources, based upon a rapid adaptation to short-term changes in population and/or the environment, as well as to a variety of local conditions, implies a strong impact upon natural resources.
In sum, we demonstrate through this comparative study that much is to be learnt from studying the dynamics of fluctuating small rodents-a focal issue within much of population ecology.

The order of the Carnivora is a well-defined taxon representing a wide range of life contains ca. species of placental mammals, and includes many carnivorous species such as canids and felids, but also omnivores, such as the black bear, and a few herbivores, like the giant panda.
The regression slopes from this analysis reveal that the population size increased on average by (s.e.m. =P = ) marmots per year between and and by marmots per year.Norman Owen-Smith, The Comparative Population Dynamics of Browsing and Grazing Ungulates, The Ecology of Browsing and Grazing, /_6, (), ().
