Simulation of cladoceran survival strategy under conditions of food depletion

Simulation of cladoceran survival strategy under conditions of food depletion Competition between several cladoceran species has been studied with the use of simulation. The results have demonstrated that, in most cases, one or two species survive. Under conditions of the minimum food supply, the most competitive species have the selective advantage. With an increase in food supply, the survival of low-competitive species was observed more often. The mean body size of surviving species increases with an increase in food reproduction. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Ecology Springer Journals

Abstract

Competition between several cladoceran species has been studied with the use of simulation. The results have demonstrated that, in most cases, one or two species survive. Under conditions of the minimum food supply, the most competitive species have the selective advantage. With an increase in food supply, the survival of low-competitive species was observed more often. The mean body size of surviving species increases with an increase in food reproduction.
