- ... Self-thinning theory predicts that decline in density with increasing individual mass should match the exponent of the metabolism–body mass relationship (∼0.9 in salmonids). However, self-thinning assumes energy equivalence (constant energy available to a cohort as it ages), which may be unrealistic for mobile taxa. I evaluate this assumption using a bioenergetic–stream habitat model to assess the ...
