Zach Wood Tackles The Ecology and Evolution of Everything

Zachary Wood took the reigns at today’s Ecology and Evolution of Everything (EEE) Lunch group.  Rumor has it he took the name of the discussion group too literally and attempted to present an individual-based model of the ecology and evolution of everything. OK, it wasn’t quite that encompassing, but it came closer than most eco-evolutionary dynamics models in examining cascading feedbacks in multi-trophic-level communities.  There was some good discussion of how best to quantify complex trait and population patterns in such systems.  There was also some nice simulation of Mike’s dietary and fitness options.
