Hopkins' ‘host selection principle’, another nail in its coffin
The previous discrimination shown by adult parasitoids emerging from aphid mummies must be determined by the chemicals contacted by a parasitoid on the skin of the mummy or while biting its way out of the dead aphid.

Paddlefish, as zooplanktivores, rely on their passive electric sense for prey detection, and capture distributions differed somewhat under certain conditions, but the general pattern and effectiveness of prey capture were not disrupted by these procedures.
Escape Behavior of Side-Blotched Lizards in Response to Model Predators
The results suggest that the escape responses of Side-blotched Lizards do not differ when approached by either a model predatory lizard or a modelpredatory snake, and the Escape responses of individual Side- blotches Lizards differ in relation to the abundances of predatory lizards or snakes in the local environment.
