Provenance and threat-sensitive predator avoidance patterns in wild-caught Trinidadian guppies

  author={Grant E. Brown and Camille J Macnaughton and Chris K. Elvidge and Indar W. Ramnarine and Jean-Guy J. Godin},
  journal={Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology},
The antipredator behaviour of prey organisms is shaped by a series of threat-sensitive trade-offs between the benefits associated with successful predator avoidance and a suite of other fitness-related behaviours such as foraging, mating and territorial defence. Recent research has shown that the overall intensity of antipredator response and the pattern of threat-sensitive trade-offs are influenced by current conditions, including variability in predation risk over a period of days to weeks… CONTINUE READING
