  This book is a must read for ecologists and conservation managers. While the Serengeti is a unique ecosystem (which explains why the results from here often dont translate to elsewhere), the depth of knowledge about the system is wonderful.5/5(1).   Integrative Wildlife Nutrition connects behavioral, morphological and biochemical traits of animals to the life history of species and thus the dynamics of populations. Year Published: Dynamics of lake trout production in the main basin of Lake Huron. To inform lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush) fishery management in Lake Huron that has undergone rapid ecosystem changes, we quantified lake trout production dynamics by coupling age-structured stock assessment and fish bioenergetics models. Ecosystem Dynamics Functional Aspects of the Ecosystem The functional aspects of the ecosystem deal with the energy flow within the ecosystem, limiting factors and the cycling of materials around the ecosystem. Energy Flow in the Ecosystem The energy that is used by the ecosystem to drive it originates from the sun.
