Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
Jevons paradox, economic EROI and r- and K-selection
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (Refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Tim Allen, UW Department of Botany
Abstract: Complexity demands more than one level of analysis. Rate-dependent and rate-independent descriptions yield contradictory accounts of resource use. In termites we see flipping between prudent frugal consumption and profligate waste depending how the analyst addresses poses the system at more than one level of analysis. All this can be expressed as a fractal response surface of increasing frugality. Wood dwelling cockroaches, wood dwelling termites, twig gathering termites and soil eating cockroaches. Most of the biomass is in twig gathering but 60% of species are soil eating.
