Understanding variation in population sizes: does the biological model matter?-ZSL Scientific Meetin

This Scientific Meeting will explore how biological models can help predict biodiversity patterns and how this information is then applied to manage wildlife.

Population dynamics is the study of marginal and long-term changes in the numbers of individuals in one or several populations, and the biological and environmental processes influencing those changes. Such studies have a strong applied side, providing results which can help manage wildlife (by helping to understand why some populations crash, or how to sustainably exploit a species) and which can help predict biodiversity patterns in the face of environmental change.

This Scientific Meeting will summarize what is known about population dynamics and what information is still lacking. Scientists working on very different biological models who may have different views on what is important will discuss future research priorities, what essential data are lacking and what the promising approaches are.

Organised by Dr Nathalie Pettorelli, Institute of Zoology, ZSL.
