Analysing size-density relationships of aquatic communities in response to strength of predator-prey interactions and resource subsidy

Our proposal aims to use existing size data of fish and their prey in lakes obtained for European monitoring programs (EU Water Framework Directive) and from several lake-specific research programs to test whether predator-prey interactions and resource subsidy modify the size-density relationships of fish and fish prey as predicted by the Energetic Equivalence Hypothesis
