Late Lunch Talk by John Christian Gaby from NMBU
Recent work has highlighted the importance of including individual heterogeneity into population models. This includes both traits that are fixed over the lifespan of an individual (e.g. morphology, genotype) and characteristics that change over time (e.g. age, body conditions). How influential such traits are for individual fitness (and population dynamics), may however depend on sex.

Friday, March 23rd, we will discuss a recent paper by Outomuro et al (2016): Antagonistic natural and sexual selection on wing shape in a scrambling damselfly Join us!
Stage structure is fundamental in quantitative population models, but there are different approaches to deal with stage duration and individual-/cohort variation therein.

Differences between individuals can be large and have profound consequences for the dynamics of populations. Even if such differences have unknown causes and/or are unobservable, they can be incorporated into population models, allowing to assess their impacts on population-level patterns.
Friday, February 2nd, we will discuss a recent paper by Rolland et al (2018): The impact of endothermy on the climatic niche evolution and the distribution of vertebrate diversity
The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters is hosting the International Polar Ocean Day, with the topic "An earth system perspective on Norwegian polar research". Open for all.
