Working with a group of NCSU graduate students, we put together a brief history of “food web ecology”, i.e., model networks of consumer-resource interactions among a group of organisms, populations, or aggregate trophic units. We framed the study through contributions of 14 accomplished food web ecologists.  The journal posted a pre-print of the paper on-line (still needs a few final edits, but good to see it up!).  For those who want a quick tour through the history of the field, a glossary of integral terms, and an extensive reference list, may be a good resource.
