Linking ecology and evolution with demography and spread.
The factors that determine the rates of population increase or decline and the differential contributions from individuals are central to the demography and evolution in natural populations. Besides abiotic factors, such changes are driven by species interactions. Scaling up to predicting species distributions is an especially challenging task, as abiotic tolerances, dispersal capacity and biotic interactions each vary in time and space.
