A broad look at organismal interactions: Linking intraspecific social interactions to an interspecific resource-consumer framework

Principal Investigators:

Will G. Wilson

Three areas of ecological research have traditionally been considered distinct: resource--consumer processes, behavioral ecology, and the study of social interactions that lead to animal grouping. Recent work has demonstrated that animal grouping can emerge within a spatial resource-consumer model. Such a connection between these two areas provides an ideal situation for linking social interactions between individuals to an individual's resource gathering. This connection enables the general study of the overall selection on an individual possessing... more
