Stoichiometry and population dynamics of consumer-resource systems: A combined experimental and modelling approach (Hosted by NCEAS)

Principal Investigators:

Jannicke Moe

A recent approach in ecology, ecological stoichiometry, recognises resource quality (nutrient ratios) as a limiting factor in addition to resource quantity. In the proposed project, we will apply this approach to study classical population-ecological problems in a new perspective. Theoretical models of consumer-resource systems have predicted dramatic and counter-intuitive changes in population dynamics, when nutrient recycling and nutrient-limited growth are considered. However, most of these models are not yet evaluated experimentally. An important... more
