'A man ahead of his time': Celebrating Eugene Odum and 50 years of ecology at UGA - Red and Black


Red and Black
In 1940, Eugene Odum was hired by the University of Georgia as an instructor in the zoology department, bringing with him ideas that would revolutionize the study of ecology for decades to come. When Odum began teaching at UGA, ecology was not yet ...

Fire Ecology's Lessons for a More Resilient Future - KQED


KQED
Despite the scope of the tragedy, Willie sees regeneration and even radical hope in the region's fire ecology. “It's a happy [dogbane] patch now,” he says, as he demonstrates how to peel the taut fibers from the plant's stalk. “It's filled with life ...

Ancient human sites may have distorted our understanding of the Amazon's natural ecology - Mongabay.com

When today's scientists examine the forest's ecology, they are primarily looking within environments where ancient native peoples lived, cleared land, and cultivated crops. These relatively “young” areas of rainforest are still recovering from human ...

Population Ecology Group

Esporles (Balearic Islands) - Spain

With the recent developments in applied mathematics and molecular techniques, we believe that the classical view of Ecology, Conservation, Evolution and Genetics as different disciplines no longer holds. Our research interest is right at the intersection of these disciplines and we focus on applied as well as theoretical aspects of population functioning and management. Our main interest is in the study of population dynamics and evolutionary demography. We base our research on long-terms individual based data of several vertebrates including birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians.

Population ecology is a major sub-field of ecology that deals with the dynamics of species populations and how these populations interact with the environment. It is the study of how the population sizes of species living together in groups change over time and space. The development of population ecology owes much to demography and actuarial life tables. Population ecology is important in conservation biology, especially in the development of po
