This paper, a model of phytoplankton growth and competition for nutrients, provides the first competition-based explanation for why body sizes of ectotherms are smaller in warmer environments and appear to be shrinking with climate change. This work is an important contribution towards predicting possible future impacts of climate change on ecological systems.
