Description

Dr Marjo Saastamoinen, Metapopulation Research Group, Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of Helsinki.

Organisms in the wild are constantly faced with a wide range of environmental variation, for example, in resource availability and  thermal conditions. Understanding how individuals can cope with such variation is becoming increasingly important due to human induced phenomena, such as habitat fragmentation, habitat degradation and climate change.
