BioMaths Colloquium Series - 2016/17
07 April 2017 - 3pm Maths Seminar Room
(room 224 Talbot Building 2nd floor)
Predator-prey biomass relationships: a role for predator density dependence?
I will consider the potential roles for density dependence operating at the level of the predator/consumer to generate these sub-linear increases in biomass at higher trophic levels. Through analyses of simple ecological models I will outline some criteria for generating the empirical pattern and compare these predictions to the rare cases where the models have been applied to data.
The discussions will continue over biscuits and tea/coffee after the seminar.
Hope to see many of you!
