Lifespan and reproduction in Drosophila: New insights from nutritional geometry
Modest dietary restriction (DR) prolongs life in a wide range of organisms, spanning single-celled yeast to mammals. Here, we report the use of recent techniques in nutrition research to quantify theExpand

Sex-Specific Fitness Effects of Nutrient Intake on Reproduction and Lifespan
Diet affects both lifespan and reproduction [1-9], leading to the prediction that the contrasting reproductive strategies of the sexes should result in sex-specific effects of nutrition on fitnessExpand

Obesity: the protein leverage hypothesis
The obesity epidemic is among the greatest public health challenges facing the modern world. Regarding dietary causes, most emphasis has been on changing patterns of fat and carbohydrate consumption.Expand

Nutrition, ecology and nutritional ecology: toward an integrated framework
Summary 1. The science of nutritional ecology spans a wide range of fields, including ecology, nutrition, behaviour, morphology, physiology, life history and evolutionary biology. But doesExpand

The ratio of macronutrients, not caloric intake, dictates cardiometabolic health, aging, and longevity in ad libitum-fed mice.
The fundamental questions of what represents a macronutritionally balanced diet and how this maintains health and longevity remain unanswered. Here, the Geometric Framework, a state-space nutritionalExpand

Analysis of covariance: an alternative to nutritional indices
Some statistical problems are added to the growing list of cautionary tales regarding the use of the conventional, ratio‐based nutritional indices (RCR, RGR, ECI, AD and ECD). Analysis of ratios isExpand

Flexible diet choice offsets protein costs of pathogen resistance in a caterpillar
Mounting effective resistance against pathogens is costly in terms of energy and nutrients. However, it remains unexplored whether hosts can offset such costs by adjusting their dietary intake so asExpand

Nutrient-Specific Foraging in Invertebrate Predators
Many herbivores and omnivores adjust their food selection behavior to regulate the intake of multiple nutrients. Carnivores, however, are generally assumed to optimize the rate of prey capture ratherExpand

Protein content of diets dictates the daily energy intake of a free-ranging primate
An important goal in nutritional ecology is to understand what governs the diet selection of free-living animals. Relevant information is however scarce because of the considerable challenges ofExpand
