  • Population-level scaling in ecological systems arises from individual growth and death with competitive constraints. We build on a minimal dynamical model of metabolic growth where the tension between individual growth and mortality determines population size distribution. We include resource competition based on shared capture area separately. By varying relative rates of growth, death, and competitive attrition, we connect regular and random spatial patterns across sessile organisms from… CONTINUE READING
