Oikos article blogged

Submitted by drupaladmin on 3 September 2011.

Over at Distributed Ecology, Ted Hart has a nice discussion of Lima & Berryman's recent Oikos article on positive and negative feedbacks in human population dynamics. The authors argue that the complexities of human behavior and societies create novel sources of negative and positive density dependence in human population dynamics, the strength of which has varied in human history, and also varies geographically. You should check them both out.
