SUMMARY 1. On the basis of simulations at two levels of organisation (individuals and populations), we analysed the impact of altered food and temperature conditions on the Asian clam Corbicula fluminea. In particular, we addressed the role of food and temperature in explaining occasional mass mortalities. 2. A Dynamic Energy Budget Model (DEBM) was used for simulations at the individual level. We calibrated the DEBM successfully using experimental data on growth in length and mass of C… CONTINUE READING
