Population and Adaptive Dynamics

Indirect interactions and conflict between mutualist partners

  • How do antagonisms (competition, interference, predation) between species sharing a mutualist partner feed back to influence the dynamics of the system as a whole?
  • What are the relative roles of indirect interactions in determining population dynamics in systems of coupled mutualism and antagonism?
  • How does the degree of specialization of the mutualist partners affect the system’s persistence under different types of antagonistic interactions?

Adaptive dynamics of density-dependent, demographically-structured populations

  • What are the expected long term trajectories of  life history traits in populations undergoing different forms of density dependence?
