Studying the demographic changes of populations and communities influencing environmental changes is a fundamental axis of basic and applied research in the field of ecology. The current challenges posed by global change and growing human impacts on the biosphere make it necessary to carry out detailed monitoring on how populations and communities respond on a demographic level. This information will aid the design of better-informed policies for the management of diversity, natural heritage, natural resources, and associated ecosystem services. Also, the study of interactions between different species facilitates knowledge about ecosystem dynamics and the aids formulation of informed predictions of future scenarios. Finally, it is important to analyze the functional characteristics of organisms as determinants of demographic responses to global change and climate change.
