Metabolic constraints and currencies in animal ecology
Our latest Special Feature, guest edited by Murray Humphries and Kevin McCann, is a collection of papers aiming to synthesise the many and diverse ecological implications of metabolism across the ecological hierarchy, from behavior and food choice to whole ecosystems.
Entomology in Animal Ecology
In this Virtual Issue we showcase the critical role that studies on insects have played in shaping our understanding of animal ecology, in the hope that entomologists will send us more of their best work.
In this Virtual Issue we highlight the contribution that papers in JAE have played in our understanding of the exciting and fast-moving area of food web ecology.
Out of Africa
In this Virtual Issue on African animal ecology, we highlight a number of recent papers from the region that showcase the major contribution to animal ecology of studies conducted in this vast and extraordinarily diverse continent.
Full list of most read and cited papers
Top 3 most cited papers published in 2013:
- How to:Quantifying individual variation in behaviour: mixed-effect modelling approaches by Dingemanse & Dochtermann
- Phenological mismatch strongly affects individual fitness but not population demography in a woodland passerine by Reed et al.
- Metacommunity structure in a small boreal stream network by Gothe et al.
Raymond Klaassen and colleagues have been awarded the 2014 Watson Raptor Prize for their paper in the Journal tilted 'When and where does mortality occur in migratory birds? Direct evidence from long-term satellite tracking of raptors'. 83: 176–184. The paper reported important new information on where and when satellite-tagged raptors died on migration and demonstrated just how hazardous migration is for these birds.
The runner up prize also went to a paper in the Journal and was awarded to Christiane Trierweiler et al. for their publication, 'A Palaearctic migratory raptor species tracks shifting prey availability within its wintering range in the Sahel', 82: 107–120.
Congratulations to Raymond, Christiane and their co-authors.
