Life has a common chemistry born from universal use of proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, etc. among all species. However, evolution has also generated interspecific variation around that central tendency. Ecological Stoichiometry seeks to understand patterns at many scales that emerge from distinct chemical signatures among species. This talk will consider examples of how EcologicalStoichiometry has been applied to understand how the chemical content of organisms shapes their ecology.
