Individual energy budgets, life histories and population dynamics in natural populations. Leverhulme Research Project Grant (RPG-2015-049): 2016-2019. Paul Blackwell Dylan Childs (Primary Investigator) Mark Rees All animals must acquire energy by consuming food, which is then allocated to different physiological processes such as growth, reproduction and tissue maintenance. Patterns of resource allocation over an organism’s lifetime determine their life history – the age of maturation, frequency of reproduction, size and number of offspring produced, and so on, through to age-at-death.
