Allometric structure and topology of food webs: Energetic constraints conserve food-web structure across ecosystems and space [thesis]

Digel Christoph
The observed generalities indicate constraints on food-web structure. The allometric degree distributions demonsrate such constraints on food-web structure by distributing the links in dependence of the species body masses. Finally, my results from chapter 4 indicate that, additionally to global topological constraints, local communities have to meet certain energetic constraints to explain the similarity found across food webs. viii ix Contributions to the chapters of this thesis Chapter 2:
