Call for papers: Wildlife Spatial Ecology
Rapid advances in satellite telemetry, GIS, GPS, and remote sensing have brought wildlife spatial ecology to the cusp of significant breakthroughs. This special column will review the applications of spatial statistics and mechanistic models with a view to improving wildlife management and conservation.
Call for papers: Male competition and speciation
Despite our long-standing efforts to understand the evolution and maintenance of new species, we still lack a clear understanding of mechanisms of speciationThis special column will address how male competition can generate or maintain population and species differences.
Call for papers: Ecology and Evolution along Environmental Gradients
Divergent natural selection stemming from different ecological environments is a central mechanism for within- and between-species diversity, and environmental gradients are one of the major natural sources of divergent selection, providing a unique opportunity to gain insights into the intricacies of natural selection.
