I am studying several subjects to manage populations living in an agricultural environment.

- Which factor stabilizes the dynamics of populations?
- How do alien species expand their distribution?
- How does global warming influence the abundance of populations?
- How can we effectively record the population dynamics?
- How can we protect against biological invasions?
