Life history constraints explain negative relationship between fish productivity and dissolved organic carbon in lakes.


PMID 28861225

Abstract

Resource availability constrains the life history strategies available to organisms and may thereby limit population growth rates and productivity. We used this conceptual framework to explore the mechanisms driving recently reported negative relationships between fish productivity and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) concentrations in lakes. We studied populations of bluegill (
