Studies of the survival of wild species require a new research focus
Lund University researcher Paul Caplat, together with colleagues from universities in Great Britain, Spain, Canada and Portugal, is behind the review. The researchers believe that the speed of reproduction and the ability to compete with other species for resources are some of the issues that have been insufficiently studied.
“We have reviewed a large number of scientific studies. We hope that our review will inspire the research community to reconsider their approach to survival matters of this character”, says Paul Caplat.
The results of the review are published in the scientific journal Trends in Ecology & Evolution.
