This chapter presents a list of desirable studies that need to be done to resolve outstanding issues about rodent population fluctuations, and suggests further studies on demographics, food, predators, and intrinsic mechanisms such as maternal effects and stress. It also discusses the current research on the impact of climate change on fluctuating rodent populations, including the constraints encountered by ecologists attempting to project the effect of climatic variables.
