The sensory ecology of prey detection in the bat-eared fox (Otocyon megalotis)
TLDR
This study provides empirical confirmation for anecdotal reports that the bat-eared fox is predominantly reliant on auditory cues to determine hunting success by conducting sensory trials with individuals belonging to a habituated population in the Kuruman River Reserve in South Africa.
COYOTE RESPONSES TO VISUAL AND OLFACTORY STIMULI RELATED TO FAMILIARITY WITH AN AREA
TLDR
Overall, coyotes were more responsive to stimuli during exploration in unfamiliar than in familiar enclosures, and none of 38 coyotes that responded were neophobic toward the olfactory stimuli.
Use of visual cues in foraging by a diurnal herbivore, Belding's ground squirrel
TLDR
Belding's ground squirrels were allowed to forage under natural conditions for experimental bait stations to test the hypothesis that they can learn to use visual cues to foraging more efficiently.
Sight or smell: which senses do scavenging raptors use to find food?
TLDR
Olfaction could be the predominant sense in Turkey vultures while olfaction and sight could play an equivalent role in Southern caracaras, and the experiments suggest that both species are able to use olfactory cues for foraging.
Tracking of food quantity by coyotes (Canis latrans)
Use of visual and olfactory sensory cues by an apex predator in deciduous forests
TLDR
Two new approaches are proposed for quantifying the importance of predator-prey interactions in the evolution of prey-predator interactions and their implications for biodiversity conservation.

Tests for Olfactory Repellents for Coyotes and Dogs
TLDR
Of the 45 candidate repellents tested, only p-chloro-acetyl chloride repelled all of the test animals; however, it is a strong irritant and lachrymator and would be impractical for use in close proximity to sheep.
Scotopic sensitivity in coyotes (Canis latrans).
  • S. W. Horn, P. Lehner
  • Environmental Science
    Journal of comparative and physiological psychology
  • 1975
TLDR
The coyotes' scotopic visual threshold is exceeded by the natural illumination available under many nocturnal conditions and is discussed in relation to the ecology of the species.
Predation by the three-spined stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus L.): the influence of hunger and experience.
TLDR
Hunger of the stickleback severely affected the risk of their prey and the dependence of prey risk on predator size could be explained by these differences in hunger decay.
Levels of Auditory Response in Fissiped Carnivores Ernest
TLDR
No clear-cut relation was found between the functionally based groupings and accepted mammalian classification, however, estimates of peripheral auditory function may be distorted by certain artifacts associated with recording CM from the membrana tympani secundaria and with the surgical procedures used.
Influence of jackrabbit density on coyote population change
TLDR
The circumstances of these changes and their possible interactions with population changes of black-tailed jackrabbits are explored and long-range coyote density appears to be partly a function of the size of the food base, with artificial control doubtlessly playing a part.
On Optimal Use of a Patchy Environment
A graphical method is discussed which allows a specification of the optimal diet of a predator in terms of the net amount of energy gained from a capture of prey as compared to the energy expended in
Behavioral Aspects of Predation
TLDR
Four hypotheses concerning mechanisms which might be of general importance in the behavior of predators are discussed: hunting by searching image, hunting by expectation, area-restricted search, and “niche” hunting.
Theory of Feeding Strategies
TLDR
Throughout, emphasis will be placed on strategic aspects of feeding rather than on what Holling (75) has called "tactics," and possible answers to the first problem may be given to the second problem.
Optimal Choice in Animals
  • J. Emlen
  • Environmental Science

  • 1968
TLDR
Though the energy and nutrient values of various foods and the types of experiences affecting food preferences in predators may change in time, predictions of food preferences based on considerations of' a predator's current habitat should prove of some value.
