Behavioral Responses of CD-1 Mice to Six Predator Odor Components.
Mammalian prey species are able to detect predator odors and to display appropriate defensive behavior. However, there is only limited knowledge about whether single compounds of predator odors areExpand

Secondhand horror: effects of direct and indirect predator cues on behavior and reproduction of the bank vole
Risk recognition by prey is of paramount importance within the evolutionary arms race between predator and prey. Prey species are able to detect direct predator cues like odors and adjust theirExpand

Voles and weasels in the boreal Fennoscandian small mammal community: what happens if the least weasel disappears due to climate change?
Abstract Climate change, habitat loss and fragmentation are major threats for populations and a challenge for individual behavior, interactions and survival. Predator–prey interactions are modifiedExpand

In utero behavioral imprinting to predation risk in pups of the bank vole
Abstract In the predator–prey arms race, survival-enhancing adaptive behaviors are essential. Prey can perceive predator presence directly from visual, auditory, or chemical cues. Non-lethalExpand
Behavioural responses of mice to predator odour components
Having means to detect and avoid potential predators is a necessity for prey species. Most mammalian prey species are able to detect odours emitted by predators and to adapt their behaviourExpand
