Assessing the role of local populations in a landscape context has become increasingly important in the fields of conservation biology and ecology. A growing number of studies attempt to determine the source–sink status of local populations. As the source–sink concept is commonly used for management decisions in nature conservation, accurate assessment approaches are crucial. Based on a systematic literature review of studies published between 2002 and 2013, we evaluated a priori predictions on ...

Alpine species adapted to mountain climate are particularly vulnerable to environmental changes and have recently come under multiple environmental pressures, such as climate change associated with habitat loss (e.g. upward shift of the treeline) and unfavourable weather, as well as increasing human recreation activities. A prime example is the Alpine Rock Ptarmigan (Lagopus muta helvetica), a subspecies restricted to the Alps. We analysed counts of territorial males from 40 sites in the Swiss A...
