  • Predator–prey interactions play a substantial role in shaping spatial distributions of organisms in biological communities. Recent theory has considered optimal habitat selection strategies for predators and prey that interact in real time. One consistent prediction across many theoretical studies is that it could be adaptive for predators to assess and respond to the quality of resources consumed by their prey (resources the predators do not consume). However, extremely few empirical studies… CONTINUE READING
