Irreversible Processes in Ecological Evolution/SamraatPawar

From Complex Time

Notes by user Samraat Pawar (Imperial College London) for Irreversible Processes in Ecological Evolution

Post-meeting Reflection

1+ paragraphs on any combination of the following:

  • Presentation highlights
  • Open questions that came up
  • How your perspective changed
  • Impact on your own work
  • e.g. the discussion on [A] that we are having reminds me of [B] conference/[C] initiative/[D] funding call-for-proposal/[E] research group

I am currently collating my meeting reflection. Will edit and paste it in after all talks are done.

For today's post meeting discussion, my question picked from the three I originally asked is:

Is there a natural scaling of irreversibility (e.g., in species interactions, set by metabolic rate scaling)?

Reference material notes

Some examples:

  • Here is [A] database on [B] that I pull data from to do [C] analysis that might be of interest to this group (insert link).
  • Here is a free tool for calculating [ABC] (insert link)
  • This painting/sculpture/forms of artwork is emblematic to our discussion on [X]!
  • Schwartz et al. 2017 offers a review on [ABC] migration as relate to climatic factors (add the reference as well).

Temperature-dependence and size scaling of Microbial metabolism

The question of the temperature-dependence of bacterial metabolism came up in multiple talks. This manuscript from our lab provides some general empirical insights into this: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/524264v1.abstract

This paper on size-scaling might also be relevant to some: 10.1073/pnas.1007783107
