Eco-coevolutionary theory predicts that predator-prey coevolution occurring on the time scale of ecological dynamics (e.g., changes in population abundances) can drive novel kinds of predator-prey cycles, e.g., cryptic cycles where one species cycles while the other remains effectively constant and clockwise cycles where peaks in predator density precede peaks in prey density. However, because this body of theory has focused on particular models and studied the different cycle types in… CONTINUE READING
