Lovers and fighters, and how their coexistence affects their evolution within an eco-evolutionary feedback loop

To contribute towards integrating the field of eco-evolutionary dynamics and move the field forward, scientific journals from the British Ecological Society, including the Journal of Animal Ecology, have just published a cross-journal special feature entitled “The diversity of eco-evolutionary dynamics: comparing the feedbacks between ecology and evolution across scales”, edited by Franziska Brunner, Jacques Deere,…

Can traits of individuals inform on how populations respond to change? A cross-journal special feature on linking organismal functions, life history strategies and population performance

We are in great need of an integrative framework that allows ecologists to predict life history strategies (i.e. the different ways in which individuals trade-off resource investment into survival or reproduction) from functional traits: traits of individuals that inform on the performance of a population of plants or animals as a whole. To contribute towards…
