研究主題:
The role of behavioral variation in population and community dynamics

研究內容概述:
Within the field of ecology, the importance of stochastic variability has long been overlooked but is undergoing a major reevaluation. Researchers are "discovering" that stochastic variability can have major effects both on quantitative predictions from ecological models and on the qualitative behavior of ecological systems. While various forms of stochastic variation have been studied, from size variation to spatiotemporal variability in resources to demographic stochasticity, surprisingly little attention has been paid to within- and among-individual variation in behavior. The project will build on existing results to delineate the relationship between behavioral variation and community dynamics. A range of models, from simple ordinary differential equations to individual-based models, will be used in order to gain the complementary advantages of analytical insight and realism.
