Environmental change may drive rapid genetic adaptation in consumer populations. Such rapid evolution may in turn have important consequences for ecological interactions. In this project we study the microevolutionary response of rotifers to phosphorus limitation of their food and how this feeds back to consumer-resource control, trophic transfer efficiency and nutrient cycling.
