Empirical evidence has shown that these features can fundamentally structure how, when, and where organisms move. For organisms that socially interact with conspecifics and/or heterospecifics in close spatial proximity, habitat configuration can therefore shape how they interact. As social structures underpin many biological processes, habitat configuration is expected to have broad ecological and evolutionary implications. However, our understanding on the general role of habitat configuration in shaping the outcomes of socially-mediated biological processes remains limited. This thesis aims at linking habitat configuration to the outcomes of social interactions using theoretical approaches. The first chapter reviews the key empirical studies investigating how habitat configuration shapes animal movements and social structures in populations, and highlights the implications for socially-mediated ecological and evolutionary outcomes. Then, for broadly and explicitly linking habitat configuration to these outcomes, the second chapter proposes a conceptual and modelling framework for characterizing habitat configurational features. It demonstrates the capability of the model, proposes key research questions, and illustrates how habitat configuration shapes such outcomes. Finally, with a broader scope, the third chapter investigates how habitat configuration shapes biodiversification as the outcome of interspecific competitive interactions. These chapters provide insights into the linkages between habitat configuration and the emergent biological outcomes in populations and communities, which are of broad relevance to studies across ecology, evolution, and conservation.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-01-05T06:21:04Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/56068/3/He_2-odshp0mzw70m3.pdf"/> <dc:contributor>He, Peng</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>He, Peng</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-01-05T06:21:04Z</dc:date> <dcterms:title>The role of habitat configuration in shaping the outcomes of social interactions</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
