- Positive correlation between genetic diversity and fitness in a large, well-connected metapopulationSofie Vandewoestijne
Biodiversity Research Centre, Universite Catholique de Louvain, Place Croix du Sud 5, 1348 Louvain la Neuve, Belgium
BMC Biol 6:46. 2008..Here we report for the first time this effect in a well-connected natural butterfly metapopulation with high population densities at the edge of its distribution range...
- Spatially and financially explicit population viability analysis of Maculinea alcon in The NetherlandsViktoriia Radchuk
Biodiversity Research Centre, Earth and Life Institute, Universite Catholique de Louvain, Louvain la Neuve, Belgium
PLoS ONE 7:e38684. 2012..This is still an open question for Maculinea species despite they are among the best studied and emblematic butterfly species, because none of the population dynamics models developed so far included dispersal...
- Negative relationship between dispersal distance and demography in butterfly metapopulationsMichel Baguette

- Cooperative social clusters are not destroyed by dispersal in a ciliateNicolas Schtickzelle
Biodiversity Research Centre, Universite Catholique de Louvain, Croix du Sud 4, 1348 Louvain la Neuve, Belgium
BMC Evol Biol 9:251. 2009..However, empirical tests of this relationship are rare. We tested this assumption experimentally using ten genetically isolated strains of a ciliate, Tetrahymena thermophila...
- Each life stage matters: the importance of assessing the response to climate change over the complete life cycle in butterfliesViktoriia Radchuk
Biodiversity Research Centre, Earth and Life Institute, Universite Catholique de Louvain, Place Croix du Sud, 4, L7 07 04, 1348, Louvain la Neuve, Belgium
J Anim Ecol 82:275-85. 2013..Life stages that are cryptic or difficult to study should not be forsaken as they may be key determinants in the overall response to climate change, as we found with overwintering Boloria eunomia larvae...
