Abstract:

This book crosses normal disciplinary boundaries in a study of the adaptational aspects of resource acquisition and its subsequent partitioning between metabolism, defence, growth, storage and reproduction in plants, animals and microorganisms. Data and theory from many disciplines are drawn together in a stimulating collection of essays which discuss allocation strategies and their consequences for a wide range of examples, from bacteria to elephants and from protozoa to trees.
