Bears are simply voles writ large: social structure determines the mechanisms of intrinsic population regulation in mammals

Local and regional determinants of colonisation-extinction dynamics of a riparian mainland-island root vole metapopulation
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
The role of local habitat geometry (habitat area and isolation) in predicting species distribution has become an increasingly more important issue, because habitat loss and fragmentation cause species range contraction and extinction. However, it has also become clear that other factors, in particular regional factors (environmental stochasticity and regional population dynamics), should be taken ...
From individuals to population cycles: the role of extrinsic and intrinsic factors in rodent populations
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-03-28)
Rodent population cycles have fascinated scientists for a long time. Among various hypotheses, an interaction of an extrinsic factor (predation) with intrinsic factors (e.g., sociality and dispersal) was suggested to lead to the generation of population cycles. Here, we tested this hypothesis with an individual-based model fully parameterized with an exceptionally rich empirical database on vole ...
