Dynamics of nutrient uptake strategies: lessons from the tortoise and the hare, joint work with Duncan Menge and Ford Ballantyne was recently published in Theoretical Ecology as part of a special issue honoring Simon Levin's 70th birthday and his contributions to the field.

The article examines optimal levels of plastic responses in nutrient uptake strategies in the face of different rates of environmental change. In doing so, we examine when hare-like vs. tortoise-like strategies are advantageous.
