Method Abstract: "[Investigators] collate and review data on size-based scaling laws for resource acquisition, mobility, sensory range, and progeny size for all pelagic marine life, from bacteria to whales. Further, [they] review and develop simple theoretical arguments for observed scaling laws and the characteristic sizes of a change or breakdown of power laws. [They] divide life in the ocean into seven major realms based on trophic strategy, physiology, and life history strategy."
