Abstract

Individual organisms differ in their ability to endure transient periods of starvation with consequences for life history and population dynamics. Here, the authors provide mechanistic explanations on how survival relates to body size intraspecifically when food is scarce or totally absent, and how to characterize individual differences in survival within a population.
