|Demonstration of the role of Jensen’s Inequality for estimating long term fitness in a thermally varying environment. This interactive notebook allows users to investigate the parameters of a Thermal Performance Curve along with those of a Normal Distribution of temperature.|
|Demonstration of Neighbor Dependent Selection - a mechanism whereby coexistence between two competing species can be maintained by continual selection to maximize fitness in one of those competitors. See Vasseur et al. 2011 (Am. Nat.) for details.
|Demonstration of overyielding in a competitive community in which predators are spatially heterogeneous. See Weis and Vasseur (Oikos) in press.|
