Metabolic responses to competition across scales

How much energy an organism consumes can be used to make inferences across scales and could be a valuable tool to predict energy fluxes of populations and communities. While scaling patterns are ubiquitous, it remains unclear how species interactions drive variation in the metabolism of individual organisms and influence functioning at higher scales of biological organization. I will discuss how intraspecific competition alters energy fluxes of individual organisms, and how these effects play out in communities. Finally, I will present recent work that explores how these metabolic responses change as species evolve in communities.
