Lifespan and reproduction in Drosophila: New insights from nutritional geometry
TLDR
The use of recent techniques in nutrition research to quantify the detailed relationship between diet, nutrient intake, lifespan, and reproduction in Drosophila melanogaster indicates a role for both direct costs of reproduction and other deleterious consequences of ingesting high levels of protein.
The Nature of Nutrition: A Unifying Framework from Animal Adaptation to Human Obesity
TLDR
The Nature of Nutrition: A Unifying Framework from Animal Adaptation to Human Obesity book will be provide using wonderful book reader and it's might gives you some access to identifying the book content before downloading the book.
Communal Nutrition in Ants
Nutrition, ecology and nutritional ecology: toward an integrated framework
TLDR
It is suggested that the distinctive feature of nutritional ecology is its integrative nature, and that the field would benefit from more attention to formalizing a theoretical and quantitative framework for developing this.
Nutrient-Specific Foraging in Invertebrate Predators
TLDR
It is showed experimentally that invertebrate predators can forage selectively for protein and lipids to redress specific nutritional imbalances.
Protein content of diets dictates the daily energy intake of a free-ranging primate
TLDR
It is shown that hypotheses traditionally used to explain vertebrate diet selection, such as energy or protein maximization, or avoidance of plant secondary metabolites, cannot explain the observed pattern of nutrient intake, and it is suggested that total energy intake may vary as a function of the composition of available food items.
A behavioural analysis of phase change in the desert locust
TLDR
It is argued that a fully integrated study of behavioural phase change provides a powerful tool for understanding both the mechanisms of phase change and locust population dynamics, both of which offer possibilities for improved management and control of desert locust plagues.
