Selective effects of temperature on body mass depend on trophic interactions and network position
Body mass is a key trait constraining interspecific interactions in food webs through changes in metabolic requirements. Because climate warming affects metabolic rates, it creates direct selective effects on body mass. Many empirical studies suggest that body mass decreases under warming, although important exceptions have been noted. We first analyze the evolution of body mass in a simple consumer-resource model to provide conditions under which a body mass increase or decrease may bedoi:10.1101/233742 fatcat:puwah4apknfipajhecwezukuni
