Data from: Energetic and Ecological Constraints on Population Density of Reef Fishes

Diego R. Barneche, Michel Kulbicki, Sergio R. Floeter, Alan M. Friedlander & Andrew P. Allen
Population ecology has classically focused on pairwise species interactions, hindering the description of general patterns and processes of population abundance at large spatial scales. Here we use the Metabolic Theory of Ecology as a framework to formulate and test a model that yields predictions linking population density to the physiological constraints of body size and temperature on individual metabolism, and the ecological constraints of trophic structure and species richness on energy partitioning among species. Our...
