The Death of the West. The Good Immigrant. An important challenge is how to incorporate key demographic rates that occur infrequently e. Until now, nomadic male lions that disperse away from prides have made it difficult to assess a critical vital rate for this declining species: male survival.
Data limitations become even more apparent when extending population models to larger fields of inference, whether spatial extent e. With data on population abundances over time, but with incomplete information on vital rates, they are able to recover key demographic parameters. Applied ecology has important intersections with a range of social factors stakeholders, policy frameworks, etc.
Insurance: Mathematics and Economics. However, if mortality continues to decline at progressively higher ages in the coming decades, the Lee-Carter model may produce forecasts that fail to capture correctly both the average lifespan and lifespan disparity. A least squares approach to analyzing catch at age data. This occurs because of poor data contrast see Section In Denmark, we observe an increase in the average lifespan in the forecast years after a period of stagnation in the s and the early s.
Indeed, they expand the boundaries of demography by linking model outputs e. A key finding is that, while managers do incorporate demography, they face a much greater range of factors e. Another potential limitation to accurate forecasting is the context of the community in which populations exist. The 20 articles of this special feature highlight the opportunities at the intersections between demography and other disciplines. The ultimate reach of demography will depend in part on research priorities and design, and it will be increasingly important for studies to quantitatively leverage each other.
Recent advances in comparative demography e. Yet, most demographic studies are highly variable in nature and implementation and not designed with the foresight to connect with other data sets and extend beyond the original study goals. For example, while collecting demographic data, researchers may want to consider certain covariates that are broadly informative e. In this sense, one might extend the concept of comparative demography to that of collective demography, where demographic data are collected with the a priori consideration that they can inform a broader suite of ecological and evolutionary questions.
Beyond the requirements of the data themselves, demographic advances have relied on developing novel quantitative tools. What we see is an emerging opportunity, illuminated by a recent surge in diverse demographic research avenues and connections.
There is much to be gained by harnessing and directing this momentum towards greater ecological consilience. Simpson, A. Everard and R. English , and the special feature especially to A. Baier and L. Many thanks are also due to the over 40 anonymous referees involved in this special feature.

Introduction Demographers have long been intrigued by the interactions of conspecific individuals and their resulting dynamics. Figure 1 Open in figure viewer PowerPoint. Populations and demography in ecology and evolution Ecology and evolution are deeply rooted in population biology and demography.
Figure 2 Open in figure viewer PowerPoint. Opportunities and challenges in the special feature Extending the reach of demography involves both opportunities and challenges. Understanding variation and the drivers of populations In order to link demographic processes with other research areas in ecology and evolution, it is crucial that we continue to expand our understanding of the underlying factors that govern population dynamics.
Ecological forecasting and applications Applied ecology has important intersections with a range of social factors stakeholders, policy frameworks, etc. Projecting forward The 20 articles of this special feature highlight the opportunities at the intersections between demography and other disciplines.
