Are we what we eat everywhere? Cross-site research of aquatic food webs

Feedback form is now closed.
Understanding whether food webs are resource- or predation-forced is a central question in ecology. It is generally assumed that bottom-up processes are the main processes that influence vertebrate population fluctuations. It is only when taxa composition and environmental conditions are just so that top-down processes dominate over space or time. However, causes for the variation within food webs is still not clear making it important to identify factors that contribute to that variation. We want to discuss ideas with other LTER aquatic scientists, and build on other cross-site aquatic studies, including LINX, NEON, and SCALER by thinking about the next LTER aquatic cross-site research initiative focused around aquatic food webs.
