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

Locust Phase Polyphenism: An Update
Publisher Summary This chapter updates former reviews on locust polyphenism and also discusses recent findings. Over 200 articles were published in scientific journals on various aspects of locustExpand
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
Communal Nutrition in Ants
Studies on nonsocial insects have elucidated the regulatory strategies employed to meet nutritional demands [1-3]. However, how social insects maintain the supply of an appropriate balance ofExpand
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
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
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
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
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
