The ability to recognize a potential predator and display adaptive antipredator behaviour is crucial to the survival of prey animals. Prey should gain a fitness advantage by displaying antipredator responses with an intensity that matches their risk of predation. Understanding how such responses develop is the focus of our current study. Many prey fish do not show innate recognition of predators. Thus, learning is necessary and a strong selection pressure should exist to make learning as… CONTINUE READING
