The dynamics and demography of socially structured carnivores

Subtitle:
Badgers, Lions and Wolves
Abstract:

Sociality in carnivores is theoretically expected to produce quantitatively different dynamics compared to solitary species, exhibiting Allee effects, increasing extinction risk and limiting population growth. There is also evidence in social species that demographic stochasticity can impact the population when densities are high. Empirical support for these processes is lacking and the effects of socio-spatial structure on population dynamics is now widely debated. The roles of social str...
