Energetic and dynamic constraints have been proposed as rival factors in determining food-web structure. Food-web length might be controlled either by the amount of energy entering the web (energetic constraints) or by time span between consecutive disturbances relative to time needed to build up a population (dynamic constraints). Dynamic constraints are identified with processes functioning at a regional scale such as climate, lithology and hydrogeology. Energetic constraints are related with… CONTINUE READING
