A demographic approach to the population effects of climate change

Friday seminar by Hal Caswell.


The effects of climate change on population growth and dynamics can be approached on several levels. I will outline an approach to these calculations that makes use of a range of deterministic and stochastic analyses. I will show an example of the application to polar bear populations and, time permitting, to emperor penguin populations.
