Population responses to climate change

The response of a population to climate change is mediated through its demographic responses to changes in environmental variables. My recent research on polar bears and penguins has focused on responses to changes in sea ice conditions, but other variables will be important in other species and/or locations. I am working to develop a general framework to permit the development and analysis of population models to explore the consequences of climate change, including stochasticity, perturbation analysis, and uncertainty analysis.
