Integrating diverse concepts from animal behavior, movement ecology, and machine learning, we develop an overview of the ecology of learning and animal movement. Learning-based movement is clearly relevant to ecological problems, but the subject is rooted firmly in psychology, including a...
Migrations allow animals to track seasonal changes in resources, find mates, and avoid harsh climates, but these regular, longdistance movements also have implications for parasite dynamics and animal health. Migratory animals have been dubbed “superspreaders” of infection, but migration can also...
Migratory species may shift established spatiotemporal patterns in response to anthropogenic impacts, so understanding the energetic consequences of behavioural plasticity may provide insight into how effectively migratory species respond to climate change. I used satellite telemetry to examine...
Factors Influencing Bioacoustically Derived Arrival Timing of Three Migrant Bird Species in the Western Boreal ForestDownload
Habitat alteration is the leading cause of bird population declines globally. Therefore, understanding the processes influencing habitat selection are important for the identification and protection of important areas for birds. Long-distance migrant birds are particularly vulnerable and are...
Short-term and long-term population growth rates can differ considerably. While changes in growth rates can be driven by external factors, we consider another source for changes in growth rate. That is, changes are generated internally by gradual modification of population structure. Such...
Linking partial migration to endo- and ectoparasite infection of collared and uncollared elk (Cervus canadensis)Download
Ungulate ecology studies can focus on forage-predation interactions, but parasites also can have significant impacts on body condition, fecundity, and survival in ungulates. The effects of migration on parasite exposure are not well understood, but exposure may differ on allopatric summer ranges....
Long-term changes in migratory patterns of elk (Cervus canadensis) in the southern Rocky Mountain Trench of British Columbia, CanadaDownload
Migration can be described as a round-trip movement between distinct ranges and is thought to be a response to a spatiotemporal variation in resources. Large vertebrate herbivores such as ungulates often migrate to track seasonal variability in high quality forage and reduce predation risk....
Migration is a behavioral response to temporal variation in resources. While migration phenology is often predictable, phenology is expected to shift as climate change alters seasonal resource availability. We used data from satellite-linked telemetry collars on adult female polar bears (Ursus...
Population Governance in China: An Analysis from the Household Registration System (Hukou) PerspectiveDownload
China’s population governance apparatus includes a system of household registration referred to as “hukou” that collects detailed data on individuals and their families. This information includes people’s birthplace, ancestral origin, ID number, religious affiliation, military service status,...
Prevalence and causes of urban homelessness among Indigenous peoples: A three-country scoping reviewDownload
A scoping review was carried out to investigate the prevalence and causes of urban homelessness among Indigenous peoples in Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Relevant information was sought from both academic and grey literatures. Data on prevalence were sourced from homeless count reports....
