Population and community ecology of ontogenetic development and growth

Principal Investigators:

Andre M. de Roos

Current ecological theory is to a large extent based on population dynamic models that ignore individual variation within species, in particular the variation that stems from the ontogenetic development that virtually all species go through during life history. The theoretical understanding about the consequences of ontogenetic development for the dynamics and structure of ecological communities has in recent years progressed to a state that a synthesizing book of this theory is urgent, possible and timely. I propose to devote my sabbatical period... more
