Populations can exhibit complex dynamics as a function of interactions between individuals and the biotic and abiotic components of their environment. Population ecology is supported by an understanding of physiological, behavioral, and evolutionary processes, with population dynamics being a core ingredient in community ecology and conservation biology. This Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution section addresses all aspects of population dynamics, with emphasis on species interactions, organism-environment relationships, how novel selection pressures change population dynamics, the roles of plasticity and adaptation in population resilience, limiting and regulating factors, numerical cycles and stability, and demographic processes. Submissions comprised of theoretical, mathematical, empirical, or synthetic investigations are welcome, and those including multiple facets are especially sought. Consideration is also given to research demonstrating an integrative approach, such as addressing the ultimate causes of population change or the implications of such change on conservation or management interventions. These are some of the broad, albeit critically-important topics that are covered in this section. It follows that this section aims to be a premier host for fundamental and applied research highlighting the rich and fascinating beauty and relevance of population and evolutionary dynamics.
