In the last years, the emergence of zoonotic diseases and the frequency of disease outbreaks have increased substantially, fuelled by habitat encroachment and asynchrony of biological cycles due to global change. The virulence of these diseases is a key aspect for their success. In order to understand the complex processes of pathogen virulence evo...

Global change is shifting the timing of biological events, leading to temporal mis-matches between biological events and resource availability. These temporal mis-matches can threaten species' populations. Importantly, temporal mismatches not only exert strong pressures on the population dynamics of the focal species, but can also lead to substanti...
