A Bird’s-Eye View of Community and Population Effects of Ontogenetic Development
This chapter provides a summary of the topics covered by the present volume. The summary serves the purpose of clearly showing how different chapters fit together in a general framework with respect to model approaches as well as results obtained. Reading this summary chapter will show readers the different types of community modules that will be analyzed as well as provide a clear impression of the results and insights that presented in this book. Topics discussed include biomass overcompensation, ontogenetic (a)symmetry in energetics, emergent community effects of biomass overcompensation, ontogenetic niche shifts in consumer life history, ontogenetic niche shifts in predator life history, competition between consumers with and without ontogenetic niche shifts, and ontogenetic (a)symmetry in energetics and population dynamics.
Keywords: ontogenetic development, ecology, ontogenetic asymmetry, biomass overcompensation, ontogenetic symmetry, ontogenetic niche shifts, consumer life history, predator life history, energetics, population dynamics
