Cryptic biodiversity effects: importance of functional redundancy revealed through addition of food web complexity.

Abstract

Interactions between predators and the degree of functional redundancy among multiple predator species may determine whether herbivores experience increased or decreased predation risk. Specialist parasites can modify predator behavior, yet rarely have cascading effects on multiple predator species and prey been evaluated. We examined influences of… (More)
