Sustainable hunting regulations take the speed of trophy growth into account

by sschindler in sschindlerblog

Hunting regulations aim to keep trophy hunting sustainable. Yet most regulations fall short of this aim and trophy size is becoming shorter over time in most hunted populations, such as Bighorn sheep, Impala, Mouflon, and Sable antelope. This might be due to ignoring the speed of trophy growth when deciding on hunting regulations. more Schindler, […]... Read more »

Regulating trophy hunting: antlers or reproduction?

by sschindler in sschindlerblog

Guest blog from Rocío Pozo: Imagine you are a trophy hunter. The red deer hunting season has just opened and you are ready to go out and get those trophies you have been waiting for. What would be the first question you would ask to yourself? Exactly! What is the hunting quota? more Pozo, R., […]... Read more »

Daughter or son, which sex to produce?

by sschindler in sschindlerblog

  The right offspring sex can increase the number of grandchildren. Theory predicts which offspring sex is optimal depending on the mother’s condition, but mothers in natural populations do not behave according to theoretical predictions. We explain the reason for the mismatch and provide more accurate predictions. more Schindler, S., Gaillard, J., Grüning, A., Neuhaus, […]... Read more »

Age-pattern of death shapes population growth rate

by sschindler in sschindlerblog

The age at which we die determines how fast our population grows. Recent work shows how to predict the growth rate of a population from the age-at-death distribution. more Schindler S, Tuljapurkar S, Gaillard JM, & Coulson T (2012).

Size, Sex and Squirrels

by sschindler in sschindlerblog

The body size of an animal influences its survival, fertility, and mating chances. In addition, who is reproducing and with whom determines how a species evolves. Despite the important fact that body size and mating decisions shape the population and the course of evolution, there have been limited methods so far to study how both […]... Read more »

New Species by Ladies’ Choice

by sschindler in sschindlerblog

Female animals who prefer healthy and fit partners are having more and fitter descendants. A gene that brings forth such mating preferences is going to spread quickly. This gene can even forward the split-up of one species into two. more Filed under: English, Posts... Read more »
