Behavioural ecology is rife with examples of prey animals that are able to adjust the intensity of their anti-predator response to match background risk levels. Often, preys need experience with predators before they will invest in costly anti-predator responses. This means that prey animals often fail to respond to predators during their first encounter.(More)
OBJECTIVE Previous studies have evaluated the cervical range of axial rotation during simulated driving conditions. The goals of this pilot study were to describe cervical spine rotation during in-car driving and determine the percentage of time outside neutral neck rotation and peak cervical axial rotation angles that the subjects adopted during various(More)
Recent studies have documented that exposure to high levels of background risk can induce neophobic predator avoidance in prey animals, whereby they respond to any novel cue with an anti-predator response. Such phenotypically plastic predator avoidance may allow prey to maximize anti-predator benefits in variable risk environments. It remains poorly(More)
