How do organisms cope with temporal variability in their environment (i.e., magnitude of fluctuations in weather conditions, food resources…)? In the context of climate change, where both the mean and short-term temporal variability of numerous environmental drivers have changed, this question has motivated extensive research in ecology and evolutionary biology. Here, I will present some of the main findings from my postdoctoral (and still ongoing) projects on the demographic responses of wild populations to environmental variability. Using empirical, comparative and/or theoretical approaches, I have investigated the demographic mechanisms responsible for population persistence in varying environments.
