Eco-evo feedbacks

 

Resource limitation is a terribly important idea in ecology. It underlies density dependence, and is therefore a key concept in population dynamics. But it has also a lot of consequences for understanding behaviour, when organisms try to gather and defend resources, including (but not limited to) maintenance of territories.
