Data from: Why time-limited individuals can make populations more vulnerable to disturbance

Henk-Jan Van Der Kolk, Bruno Ens, Magali Frauendorf, Eelke Jongejans, Kees Oosterbeek, Willem Bouten & Martijn Van De Pol
Individual variation in disturbance vulnerability (i.e. the likelihood that disturbance negatively affects an individual’s fitness) can affect how disturbance impacts animal populations, as even at low disturbance levels some individuals could be severely affected and die. Individual variation in vulnerability can arise due to different responses to disturbance. We propose a new hypothesis that even when individuals respond similarly to disturbance, time-limited individuals are more at risk that their condition deteriorates since they have limited...

Searching for the causes of decline in the Dutch population of turtle doves Streptopelia turtur

E.H.J. De Vries, Ruud.P.B. Foppen, Henk Van Der Jeugd & Eelke Jongejans
European Turtle Doves Streptopelia turtur have experienced a sharp decline in population numbers over past decades. Much uncertainty exists about the main cause or causes. Several pressures have been suggested, but because they affect different stages of the life cycle of the Turtle Dove, it is difficult to compare their contributions to population decline. Here we applied a full life cycle approach to study how different pressures may have resulted in the decline. This was...

Data from: Wintering bird communities are tracking climate change faster than breeding communities

1. Global climate change is driving species’ distributions towards the poles and mountain tops during both non-breeding and breeding seasons, leading to changes in the composition of natural communities. However, the degree of season differences in climate-driven community shifts has not been thoroughly investigated at large spatial scales. 2. We compared the rates of change in the community composition during both winter (non-breeding season) and summer (breeding) and their relation to temperature changes. 3. Based...
