Florian Jeltsch, Volker Grimm
2020 Movement Ecology  
Moreover, also for another key question of biodiversity research, how species composition will change due to range shifts and invasive species, a mechanistic understanding of movement, in particular dispersal  ...  Moreover, putting movement into its broader ecological context could have important repercussions on the framework of movement ecology itself.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors are grateful for the support by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft in the framework of the BioMove Research Training Group (DFG-GRK 2118/1).  ...

Connecting Mobility to Infectious Diseases: The Promise and Limits of Mobile Phone Data

Amy Wesolowski, Caroline O. Buckee, Kenth Engø-Monsen, C. J. E. Metcalf
2016 Journal of Infectious Diseases  
Combining data on human movement from mobile phone data-derived population fluxes with data on disease incidence requires approaches that can tackle varying spatial and temporal resolutions of each data  ...  and spatial heterogeneities.  ...  However, recent years have seen a substantial change in our understanding of human mobility across contexts.  ...

The Role of Individual Heterogeneity in Collective Animal Behaviour

Jolle W. Jolles, Andrew J. King, Shaun S. Killen
2019 Trends in Ecology & Evolution  
Here we present a common framework to quantify individual heterogeneity and synthesise the literature to systematically explain and predict its role in collective behaviour across species, contexts, and  ...  However, we still lack a mechanistic understanding of the role of phenotypic variation in collective animal behaviour.  ...  Still large gaps remain in our understanding of the effects of individual heterogeneity on group functioning and individual survival in the context of predator-prey interactions.  ...

Contact structure, mobility, environmental impact and behaviour: the importance of social forces to infectious disease dynamics and disease ecology

Ronan F. Arthur, Emily S. Gurley, Henrik Salje, Laura S. P. Bloomfield, James H. Jones
2017 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
The social-ecological system that dictates infectious disease dynamics is a complex system rich in interacting variables with dynamically significant heterogeneous properties.  ...  Future discussions about infectious disease spillover and transmission in human populations need to address the social context that affects particular disease systems by identifying and measuring qualitatively  ...  A key barrier to better understanding the role of human mobility in disease ecology has been the lack of data that describe movement, except in these detailed, and often small-scale, observational studies  ...

2008 The Journal of Ecology  
The model was parameterized with small- scale movement data collected from field observations of birds.  ...  Our results suggest that long-distance dispersal events can be predicted using spatially explicit modelling to scale-up local movements, placing them in a landscape context.  ...
