Predator Inspection Behaviour Covaries With Schooling Tendency Amongst Wild Guppy, Poecilia Reticulata, Populations in Trinidad
TLDR
There is a strong correlation between schooling tendency and the group sizes adopted by guppies inspecting a realistic model predator, and it seems unlikely that many of these fish were caught in a Prisoner's Dilemma.
RISK-SENSITIVE ANTIPREDATOR BEHAVIOR IN THE TRINIDADIAN GUPPY, POECILIA RETICULATA.
TLDR
It is found that guppies from high-risk populations showed a heightened response, compared to those from lower risk populations, only when exposed to the predator species that posed the greatest risk.
Predator inspection, shoaling and foraging under predation hazard in the Trinidadian guppy,Poecilia reticulata
TLDR
Guppies exhibited a lower feeding rate in the presence of the predator, suggesting a trade-off between foraging gains and safety against predation, and it is suggested that predator inspection behavior may account for some of this reduction in foraging.
Predator recognition and anti-predator responses in the rainbowfish Melanotaenia eachamensis
TLDR
Comparisons of Predator evasion behaviour patterns of three populations of rainbowfish suggest that the level of habitat complexity as well as prior predator experience influence anti-predator responses of different fish populations.
Predator inspection behaviour in three-spined sticklebacks (Gasterosteus aculeatus): body size, local predation pressure and cooperation
TLDR
It is confirmed that levels of predator inspection are both population- and situation-dependent, suggesting a trade-off in the potential costs and benefits of this behaviour.
Cross-population responses to conspecific chemical alarm cues in wild Trinidadian guppies, Poecilia reticulata: evidence for local conservation of cue production
TLDR
Free-ranging guppies in the Lower Aripo (high-predation population) exhibited more risk-aversive inspection behaviour towards a fish predator model paired with the alarm cues of guppie collected from the same population versus a river water control.
Who dares, benefits: predator approach behaviour in the guppy (Poecilia reticulata) deters predator pursuit

TLDR
This work demonstrates experimentally that the predators were significantly less attentative to, and less likely to attack and kill, guppies which inspected them than those which did not, and incurred a significantly lower risk of attack and death than non-inspectors when approached by the predator.
Multiple selection pressures influence Trinidadian guppy (Poecilia reticulata) antipredator behavior
TLDR
The response of wild-caught individuals from upstream and downstream populations to an aquatic predator and a simulated aerial predator is examined, demonstrating the importance of considering multiple selection pressures acting on an organism when trying to understand the evolutionary history of behavioral and morphological traits.
Can Paradise Fish (Macropodus opercularis, Anabantidae) Recognize a Natural Predator? An Ethological Analysis
TLDR
The antipredatory behavior of paradise fish may be affected by both genetic factors and learning and that the relative importance of the former or latter factor may vary depending on the situation.

Risk Sensitive Courtship in the Guppy (Poecilia Reticulata)
TLDR
Two Trinidad populations were compared and although males from the two populations used both sneaky and conventional courtship behaviours there were individual differences in the use of the reproductive tactics.
The Discrimination of and Reactions towards Predatory and Non‐predatory Species of Fish by Humbug Damselfish, Dascyllus aruanus (Pisces, Pomacentridae)
TLDR
The ability of D. aruanus to discriminate various species of fish towards which responses and no response should be made was investigated in the field and interspecific aggressive behaviour is described and was exhibited towards species of predatory fish only.
GEOGRAPHIC VARIATION IN THE SEXUAL BEHAVIOUR OF THE GUPPY, POECILIA RETICULATA (PETERS)
TLDR
Evidence is provided that there is a genetic basis to the observed behavioral differences between populations of guppies and that sexual selection has favoured the evolution of visual components of courtship behaviour in the guppy.
The influence of early experience on escape behaviour in the guppy (Poecilia reticulata)
Guppies (Poecilia reticulata) with or without experience of being chased by adult conspecifics were exposed first to a model "aerial predator" to assess the magnitude of their escape response, then

TLDR
This report presents a new source of evidence favoring an antipredator role for schooling in guppies from natural populations of a small tropical freshwater fish, the guppy, in the Northern Range Mountains of Trinidad, West Indies.

TLDR
Mnows from provenances with and without pike exhibited a similar repertoire of antipredator behaviour patterns, but those sympatric with the predator integrated their tactics more effectively and regained pre-exposure behaviour sooner after each encounter.
Snake Species Discrimination and the Role of Olfactory Cues in the Snake-Directed Behavior of the California Ground Squirrel
TLDR
The results confirmed predictions that the squirrels should behave more cautiously toward rattlesnakes than toward gopher snakes, and that olfaction is an important mediator of snake-directed behavior.
