    General

    My team and I (see InDEED team tab) research how ecological and evolutionary processes interact to determine the fluctuations of populations. Our research falls within three themes: functional trait demography, eco-evolutionary dynamics and developmental plasticity (see Research tab). To develop and test our hypotheses we use laboratory experiments on mites, statistical analysis of data and the construction and analysis of demographic models. We do not only apply our methods to small (laboratory) organisms like bulb mites (Rhizoglyphus robini) and beach hoppers (Orchestia gammarellus), but also to marine megafauna populations of rays, reef sharks and sea turtles.

  • Team InDEED and collaborators

    InDEED: Integrating Development, Ecological and Evolutionary Dynamics

    The team

    The team consists of a diverse group of biologists that are interested in range of topics that include behavioural ecology, eco-evolutionary dynamics, life history theory, energy budget theory, and demography. Each year we have several Bachelor and Master students working in the lab. Prospective students, please check out the DEB-IPM project page and the alumni pages for an overview of current and previous projects (and publications that resulted from these projects).

    Isabel Smallegange (team leader)

    My research aims at developing a mechanistic framework to link ecology and evolution on the basis of the processes that drive the dynamics of heritable life history traits. I focus on understanding the maintenance and evolution of male dimorphism and the role of harvesting and environmental change in experimental and field populations. FUNDING: MacGillavry Fellowship (2013 - 2018), MEERVOUD (2014 - 2018) and VIDI (2015 - 2020) (NWO).

    Flor Rhebergen (PhD student)

    A PhD project by Flor Rhebergen investigating how harvesting and environmental variability affect the joint dynamics of life history traits and population biomass dynamics of 'fast' Rhizoglyphus robini and 'slow' Naiadacarus arboricola populations in the lab and in the field. FUNDING: VIDI Fellowship (awarded to I.M. Smallegange).

    Mark Rademaker (PhD student at the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research and IBED-UvA)

    Mark is doing his PhD under the daily supervision of Anieke van Leeuwen on fish ecology using an empirical-theoretical approach. The aim is to understand how changing climate conditions and human impacts affect the dynamics of marine fish stocks. Both Mark and Anieke are based at the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research, and Mark will defend his thesis at the University of Amsterdam.

    Kim Eustache (PhD student at CRIOBE / Perpignan University and IBED-UvA)

    Kim is doing a joint doctorate PhD between the University of Perpignan / CRIOBE, where she is supervised by Serge Planes , and the University of Amsterdam, where she is supervised by Isabel Smallegange, on recruitment in black tip reef sharks (Carcharhinus melanopterus) off the coast of the island of Moorea in French Polynesia. The aim is to understand the black tip reef sharks' genetics and demography to improve local conservation strategies.

    Marjolein Toorians (visiting PhD student University of British Columbia, Canada)

    Marjolein is doing her PhD under the direct supervision of Jonathan Davies on the role of transmission in the disease-diversity relationship and reservoir dynamics. She will visit the lab in 2021 to work on a multi-host reservoir model including evolutionary history.

  • Research

    Research conducted within the team falls within three themes.

    Functional trait demography

    Climate variability is increasing. How will this affect different plant and animal species? We are in great need of an integrative framework that allows ecologists to predict life history strategies (i.e. the different ways in which individuals trade-off resource investment into survival or reproduction) from functional traits: traits of individuals that inform on the performance of a population of plants or animals as a whole. Such a framework is important to inform conservation strategies. Our research takes the mechanistic underpinnings of biological variation as a starting point to extrapolate from life history strategies the responses of populations to future environmental changes. Our analyses are also part of the DEB-IPM project where we link functional life history traits to population response to environmental change.

    Eco-evolutionary dynamics

    How evolutionary changes (like shifts in genotype and phenotype frequencies) and ecological changes (like the size, composition and growth of an animal or plant population) affect each other is a topic of intense and growing investigation in biology. Why? Because for a long time, ecologists ignored evolutionary processes as they were assumed to occur at much longer time scales (thousands to millions of years) compared to ecological processes (days to years). Vice versa, evolutionary biologists ignored ecological processes as these were assumed to occur at such short time scales that their effects would be unnoticeable at the long, evolutionary timescales. However, over the past decades, notions have changed and we now want to understand how ecological and evolutionary variables are both the drivers and the objects of change. Our research aims at formulating and testing predictions on eco-evolutionary population responses to environmental change using demographic models, long-term population experiments with bulb mites in the lab, and simulations on field data collected for a wide range of species.

    Developmental plasticity

    Developmental plasticity, whereby a specific input during an individual’s development produces a lasting alteration in phenotype, has been well-documented in human and non-human animals. It is studied by both evolutionary biologists and researchers studying human health. However, there is still little cross-disciplinary understanding of developmental plasticity. Two types of developmental plasticity can be recognized: predictive and constraints-induced developmental plasticity. Importantly, developmental plasticity can alter the direction of evolutionary change to the extent that phenotypic variation derived from development becomes encoded in the genome. We aim to unravel the mechanisms and drivers of developmental plasticity using the two male morphs of the bulb mite as our model system.

  • Predicting population responses to change: the DEB-IPM project

    What is the DEB-IPM project about?

    How can we predict how populations respond to the ever greater changes in their environment? Within this project, we want to know which characteristics of organisms relate to population responses to environmental change. One way to find out is to analyse life history patterns using demographic models. However, depending on whether you model individual life histories from phenomenological descriptions (Salguero-Gomez et al. 2016; Paniw et al. 2018; Capdevila et al 2020) or from mechanistic descriptions using energy budget models (Smallegange et al. in press; Smallegange & Berg 2019), different predictions are obtained.

    The DEB-IPM project aims to (i) unravel if energy budget descriptions of individual life histories consistently return different predictions on population responses to environmental change compared to when individual life histories are represented by statistical functions, (ii) understand why that is the case, and (iii) identify the most accurate way to predict population responses to novel environmental change. To this end, we support Bachelor, Master and PhD student projects in which students answer their own research questions, while at the same time expanding the DEB-IPM database to ultimately conduct large, cross-taxonomical life history analyses.

    What is a DEB-IPM?

    Integral projection models (IPMs) have emerged as a powerful tool to investigate population-level processes from an individual-level perspective, partly because the demographic processes of growth, survival and reproduction are estimated using flexible and easy-to-use phenomenological methods such as regression models (Smallegange & Coulson 2013). The downside of these regression models, however, is that they lack a mechanistic representation of the biological processes that give rise to observed survival, growth and reproduction. The DEB-IPM (Smallegange et al. 2017) explicitly incorporates an energetic description of growth and reproduction into IPMs. IPMs, and also DEB-IPMs, can be analysed using tools from demography. This will allow researchers to investigate ecological and evolutionary patterns such as population dynamics, geographic distributions or evolution of life-history strategies, from an energy budget perspective on demographic rates, which has traditionally been tackled by using the mathematically more challenging physiological structured population models (de Roos & Persson 2013).

    DEB-IPM database

    The number of species for which we have collected data to parameterize a DEB-IPM is increasing, and are collated in an excel file: DEB-IPM project. Database of DEB-IPM model parameters.

    Kathryn (Kat) Stewart

    Kat investigated how alternative mating tactics arise and are maintained within species, employing experimental approaches that incorporated environmental and demographic parameters with population genetics. Her research interests pivot around the origins and maintenance of biodiversity, from the level of local adaptation and limiting gene flow in single landscapes, through the genetics of entire species' ranges, to understanding the causes of diversification of entire clades. FUNDING: VIDI Fellowship (awarded to I.M. Smallegange).

    Jacques Deere

    Jacques investigated, using the bulb mite ( Rhizoglyphus robini) as a study species, the influence of dispersal propensity on population size and structure, life histories and how these change with stochastic environments. 

    Laura Gangoso

    Laura won a Marie Curie Fellowship and was based in the group of Willem Bouten. In her Post Doc she studied the ecological and evolutionary consequences of predator-prey phenological match-mismatch driven by climate change using Eleonora's falcon as a study system. Interestingly, Eleonora's falcon has a genetically determined colour polymorphism that covaries with behavioural traits and, together with Isabel, she aimed to explore the eco-evolutionary dynamics of variation in this colour polymorphism using integral projection models.

    PhD students

    Tom van den Beuken

    Many species exhibit two discrete male morphs: fighters and sneakers. Fighters are large and possess weapons that they use to kill rival males. Sneakers are small without weapons but can sneak matings. Tom's PhD research focused on finding out why such discrete morphs can coexist in single populations and what drivers underlie the expression of such dimorphisms. FUNDING: MacGillavry Fellowship (awarded to I.M. Smallegange).

    Rula Domínguez

    Rula is a marine biologist with a diverse professional experience in marine ecology and biological oceanography, ranging from fisheries acoustics of pelagic fish stocks, to rocky shore ecology, lately to zooplankton ecology. She is currently doing a PhD in ecophysiology of intertidal bivalves at the University of Vigo, Spain. In 2020, she visited my lab for several months, until the corona crisis forced her to return to Spain. We work on a project investigating how salinity stress impacts predation risk of bivalve species both endemic and invasive to the Vigo coast.
