- Dynamical and statistical models of vertebrate population dynamicsJean Dominique Lebreton
CEFE, UMR 5175, 1919, route de Mende, 34293 Montpellier Cedex 5, France
C R Biol 329:804-12. 2006..Some biological questions (density dependence, links between individual and population levels, and diversification of life histories) can now be efficiently attacked...
- Simple estimation and test procedures in capture-mark-recapture mixed modelsJ D Lebreton
CEFE, UMR 5175, CNRS, 1919 Route de Mende, 34293 Montpellier Cedex 5, France
Biometrics 68:494-503. 2012..Permutation and analysis of deviance tests are shown to behave properly and are recommended. Permutation tests are implemented in the latest version of program E-SURGE. Our approach also applies to generalized linear mixed models...
- The impact of global change on terrestrial VertebratesJean Dominique Lebreton
UMR 5175, CEFE, CNRS, 1919, route de Mende, 34293 Montpellier Cedex 5, France

Theor Popul Biol 82:307-16. 2012..Hidden process models are a promising tool as they allow population biologists to cope with process variation while simultaneously accounting for observation error...
- Assessing whether mortality is additive using marked animals: a Bayesian state-space modeling approachSabrina Servanty
Centre d Ecologie Fonctionnelle et Evolutive, Campus CNRS, UMR 5175, 1919 Route de Mende, 34293 Montpellier Cedex 5, France

- Studying dispersal at the landscape scale: efficient combination of population surveys and capture-recapture dataGuillaume Peron
Centre d Ecologie Fonctionnelle et Evolutive, CNRS, UMR 5175, 1919 Route de Mende, 34293 Montpellier, Cedex 5, 34293 France
Ecology 91:3365-75. 2010..These results suggest that first-time breeders disperse to small colonies in order to recruit earlier. The exchange of experienced breeders between colonies appears as a main determinant of the observed variation in colony sizes...
- Breeding dispersal in black-headed gull: the value of familiarity in a contrasted environmentGuillaume Peron
Centre d Ecologie Evolutive et Fonctionnelle UMR 5175, CNRS, 1919 Route de Mende 34293 Montpellier, Cedex 5, France
J Anim Ecol 79:317-26. 2010..Moreover, the regional population apparently functioned as a meta-colony where individuals frequently bred in suboptimal-choice locations before being able to recruit in their preferred colony...
- Importance of accounting for detection heterogeneity when estimating abundance: the case of French wolvesSarah Cubaynes
Centre d Ecologie Fonctionnelle et Evolutive, UMR 5175, Campus CNRS, 1919 Route de Mende, F 34293 Montpellier cedex 5, France
Conserv Biol 24:621-6. 2010..In a noninvasive capture-recapture study of wolves we based on genotypes identified in feces and hairs, we found a large underestimation of population size (27% on average) occurred when IDH was ignored...

CEFE, UMR 5175, CNRS, 1919 Route de Mende, 34293 Montpellier Cedex 05, France
J Anim Ecol 75:1172-81. 2006..Our study also highlights the importance of events outside the breeding area for the population dynamics of migrant species...

Ecology 88:289-95. 2007..These models are flexible enough to test for several effects that potentially affect survival and mark loss probabilities...
- Recruitment to a seabird population depends on environmental factors and on population sizeLaurent Crespin
Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Hill of Brathens, Banchory, Aberdeenshire AB31 4BW, UK
J Anim Ecol 75:228-38. 2006..695 (0-654; 0.733) and observations of Isle of May chicks at other colonies, suggests that most surviving chicks return to the natal colony before deciding whether to recruit there or move elsewhere...
- Generation time: a reliable metric to measure life-history variation among mammalian populationsJean Michel Gaillard
Unite Mixte de Recherche 5558, Biometrie et Biologie Evolutive, Bâtiment 711, Universite Claude Bernard Lyon 1, 43 Boulevard du 11 Novembre 1918, 69622 Villeurbanne Cedex, France
Am Nat 166:119-23; discussion 124-8. 2005..We suggest that generation time is a reliable metric to measure life-history variation among mammalian populations and should be preferred to any arbitrary combination between vital rates...
