A number of studies show that predators can depress prey growth rates by inducing reductions in foraging activity, but the size of this non-lethal effect is quite variable. Here I investigate how prey density and resource productivity may alter the extent to which predators depress the growth rates of their prey. Theory predicts that when resources are overgrazed, an increase in predation risk will have little net effect on individual food intake because the decline in foraging effort will be… CONTINUE READING
