Response to Marquet et al.

Roger Nisbet, Tiago Domingos and I recently published a response to Marquet et al.’s paper in BioScience last year where they called for more theory in ecology, and in particular more ‘efficient’ theories. They used Dynamic Energy Budget theory as an example of an ‘inefficient’ theory. We argue why this is an unfair and incorrect characterisation.

It is presently on the early view page of BioScience.
