AlBatati, Fawaz (2013-02-28)To be successful, individuals that are susceptible to predation have to optimize the trade-offs between predator avoidance and other fitness related activities such as foraging or reproduction. One challenge for prey is ...

Chemosensory assessment of predation risk by fishes : ecological and social factors affecting learning and use of heterospecific alarm cues Pollock, Michael Shawn (2006-03-28)Throughout their lives, prey organisms must balance the tradeoff between fitness-related activities and the risk of predation. To successfully mediate such tradeoffs, prey must have an accurate method to gauge current ...
