The effect of prey behaviour on prey acquisition by a predator was examined in the laboratory, using three larval mosquitoes.Aedes albopictus was acquired by the predator,Toxorhynchites towadensis, at a higher rate thanOrthopodomiya anopheloides. Toxorphynchites towadensis was a sit-and-wait predator.Aedes albopictus was more active thanO. anopheloides. Orthopodomiya anopheloides ran away before the predator attacked, butA. albopictus did not. The escape ratio inO. anopheloides was higher than… Expand
