Biodiversity loss is a major challenge. Over the past century, the average rate of vertebrate extinction has been about 100-fold higher than the estimated background rate and population declines continue to increase globally. Birth and death rates determine the pace of population increase or decline, thus driving the expansion or extinction of a species. Design of species conservation policies hence depends on demographic data (e.g., for extinction risk assessments or estimation of harvesting qu...

Summary The conservation of wetlands, many threatened by human activities, is paramount to sustaining global biodiversity. Yet the protection of targeted wetlands may not be sufficient to protect the species they host because some species may also be impacted by alterations to the surrounding landscape. Some black-headed gull (Chroicocephalus ridibundus: Laridae) populations have experienced a sharp decline in population size and number of colonies. Here, we investigated the relative contributio...

The science of complex systems is increasingly asked to forecast the consequences of climate change. As a result, scientists are now engaged in making predictions about an uncertain future, which entails the efficient communication of this uncertainty. Here we show the benefits of hierarchically decomposing the uncertainty in predicted changes in animal population size into its components due to structural uncertainty in climate scenarios (greenhouse gas emissions and global circulation models),...

The purpose of this text is to provide a broad overview of wildlife demography and explain how demographic approaches shed light on wildlife conservation and management issues. First, we summarize the main interactions between humans and wildlife and briefly review the history of research on wildlife demography and modern tools for wildlife demography. In a comparative perspective, we then show how the diversity of wildlife life cycles and demography is organized on a slow-fast continuum and how...

The diversity of traits across species is organized around main axes of variation in life history. Among them, the slow–fast continuum first described by Stearns (1983) is the most frequently analyzed. After presenting the history of this slow–fast continuum, we perform an updated review of its empirical support from analyses of vertebrates. We show that conflicting results and interpretation reported in previous studies can be attributed to various problems, including the lack of consideration ...

Summary Understanding how climate change will affect animal population dynamics remains a major challenge, especially in long-distant migrants exposed to different climatic regimes throughout their annual cycle. We evaluated the effect of temperature throughout the annual cycle on demographic parameters (age-specific survival and recruitment, breeding propensity and fecundity) of the greater snow goose (Chen caerulescens atlantica L.), an arctic-nesting species. As this is a hunted species, we u...

Summary 1. In a rapidly changing world, understanding and predicting population change is a central aim of applied ecologists, and this involves studying the links between environmental variation and vital rates (survival, fecundity, etc.). Demographic analysis and modelling can be daunting for practicing ecologists, and here we provide an overview of some of the most important issues and methods. 2. Collection of demographic data should follow standardized protocols and the statistical power to...

Change in the size of populations over space and time is, arguably, the motivation for much of pure and applied ecological research. The fundamental model for the dynamics of any population is straightforward: the net change in the abundance is the simple difference between the number of individuals entering the population and the number leaving the population, either or both of which may change in response to factors intrinsic and extrinsic to the population. While harvest of individuals from a...
