Metabolic ecology : a scaling approach

Author: Richard M Sibly
Publisher: Chichester : Wiley-Blackwell, 2012.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
"Most of ecology is about metabolism: the ways that organisms use energy and materials. The energy requirements of individuals - their metabolic rates - vary predictably with their body size and temperature. Ecological interactions are exchanges of energy and materials between organisms and their environments. So metabolic rate affects ecological processes at all levels: individuals, populations, communities and
