Prey nutrient composition has different effects on Pardosa wolf spiders with dissimilar life histories

Abstract

The nutritional composition of prey is known to influence predator life histories, but how the life history strategies of predators affect their susceptibility to nutrient imbalance is less investigated. We used two wolf spider species with different life histories as model predators: Pardosa amentata, which have a fixed annual life cycle, and Pardosa… (More)
