When individuals store resources acquired while moving through a spatially variable habitat, a form of population structure arises. The theoretical consequences of this process for resource competition are studied for phytoplankton species consuming a single nutrient resource, using a Lagrangian modeling approach. Each competitor population is divided into many subpopulations that move through two model habitats with gradients in nutrient availability: an unstirred chemostat and a partially… CONTINUE READING
