Behavioral decisions made under the risk of predation: a review and prospectus
TLDR
This work has shown that predation is a major selective force in the evolution of several morphological and behavioral characteristics of animals and the importance of predation during evolutionary time has been underestimated. Expand
Stress and Decision Making under the Risk of Predation: Recent Developments from Behavioral, Reproductive, and Ecological Perspectives
Publisher Summary This chapter reviews the present empirical and theoretical work on antipredator decision making. The ways in which predators influence the behavioral decisions made by their prey isExpand
Temporal Variation in Danger Drives Antipredator Behavior: The Predation Risk Allocation Hypothesis
TLDR
This analysis suggests that an animal should exhibit its greatest antipredator behavior in high‐risk situations that are brief and infrequent, and suggests that a common experimental protocol is likely to overestimate the intensity of antipredators behavior expected under field situations or chronic exposure to high risk. Expand
Nonlethal Effects in the Ecology of Predator-Prey Interactions What are the ecological effects of anti-predator decision-making?
TLDR
A perusal of any recent textbook on ecology will not only confirm the importance of predation in modern ecology, but also illustrate the preeminence of the "lethal" perspective on predation. Expand
Predators and the breeding bird: behavioral and reproductive flexibility under the risk of predation

  • 1 August 2009
TLDR
This review investigates the nature of this flexibility in the face of predation from both behavioural and reproductive perspectives, and also explores several directions for future research. Expand
PREDATION RISK AND UNPREDICTABLE FEEDING CONDITIONS: DETERMINANTS OF BODY MASS IN BIRDS'
TLDR
A simple stochastic simulation model developed readily explains why wintering birds maintain fat levels lower than those of which they are capable and the tendency for individuals of a given bird species to be heavier in more northerly populations and during midwinter is readily interpreted. Expand
Naiveté and an aquatic-terrestrial dichotomy in the effects of introduced predators.
TLDR
It is argued here that this dichotomy reflects widespread naiveté toward introduced predators among freshwater prey, thereby producing a systemic vulnerability to introduced predators that is not seen in continental terrestrial or marine systems. Expand
Putting predators back into behavioral predator–prey interactions
TLDR
Putting predators back into the picture will be challenging, but doing so might change the way in which biologists think about predator–prey interactions in general. Expand
SEARCH STRATEGIES FOR LANDSCAPE‐LEVEL INTERPATCH MOVEMENTS
TLDR
Computer simulations that contrast the effectiveness of various search strategies at finding habitat patches in idealized land- scapes suggest that a simple and effective search rule for many landscape-explicit models would involve straight or nearly straight movements. Expand
Towards a behavioral ecology of ecological landscapes.
TLDR
A landscape-conscious behavioral undertaking would not only establish more firmly the link between behavior and ecological systems, but also catalyze the study of basic biological phenomena of Interest to behaviorists and ecologists alike. Expand
