Size constraints in a real food web: predator, parasite and prey body-size relationships.

Journal Article
Leaper, R., & Huxham, M. (2002)
Size constraints in a real food web: predator, parasite and prey body-size relationships. Oikos, 99, (443-456). doi:10.1034/j.1600-0706.2002.10888.x. ISSN 0030-1299
In the absence of well-resolved food webs that include both information on predators and parasites, body-size has been proposed as the biological mechanism underlying the assu...
