Gamelon, M. et al. 2017. Interactions between demography and environmental effects are important determinants of population dynamics. Science Advances 3, e1602298. 

Climate change will affect the population dynamics of many species; yet the consequences for the long-term persistence of populations are poorly understood. We show that an interplay between winter temperature and population density can influence the persistence of a Norwegian population of white-throated dipper under global warming. Although warmer winters increase mean population size, density-dependent feedback can cause the local population to be less buffered against occasional poor environmental conditions (cold winters). This shows that it is essential to go beyond the population size and explore climate effects on the full dynamics in order to elaborate targeted management actions.

Opedal et al. 2017. Euglossine bees mediate only limited long-distance gene flow in a tropical vine. New Phytologist 213, 1898–1908. 

Disruption of species interactions is an important consequence of environmental change. Declines in pollinator populations, for example, can lead to reduced gene flow among plant populations. Neotropical euglossine bees are extraordinarily strong-flying insects, and are thought to act as long-distance pollinators. We show that gene flow among scattered populations of euglossine-pollinated Dalechampia vines in Costa Rica is very limited. While perhaps detrimental on long time-scales due to loss of genetic diversity through limited gene flow might also increase the opportunity for local adaptation in response to fluctuating environmental conditions.
