Food quality effects on ecological efficiency at multiple scales in aquatic systems

Principal Investigators:

Kimberly L. Schulz

I am interested in how the biochemical composition of food ('food quality') affects the performance and fitness of consumers, and how these nutritional effects on individuals translate to higher ecological levels such as population dynamics, community composition, and trophic transfer efficiency. Often, work on different aspects of food quality (e.g., nutrient content -- 'stoichiometry', essential fatty acid composition, protein content) has been done in disparate disciplines (e.g., limnology and aquaculture). I propose a sabbatical leave at NCEAS... more
