Disaccord between the supply and demand of energy (carbon, C) and certain material elements (e.g. phosphorus, P) across trophic levels is common in most ecosystems and impacts the strength of trophic interactions and ecosystem functions such as productivity and nutrient recycling. Yet, we know little about mechanisms operating at the lower levels of biological organization that drive such higher-level ecological processes. Such information should help refine theories integrating biological… CONTINUE READING
