Tradeoffs involved in site selection and foraging in a wolf spider : effects of substrate structure and predation risk

  author={Ann L. Rypstra and Jason M. Schmidt and Brant D. Reif and Jill DeVito and Matthew H. Persons},
Understanding how animals weigh habitat features, exposure to predators and access to resources is important to determining their life history and distribution across the landscape. For example, when predators accumulate in structurally complex habitats, they face an environment with different competitive interactions, foraging opportunities and predatory risks. The wolf spider Pardosa milvina inhabits the soil surface of highly disturbed habitats such as agricultural fields throughout eastern… CONTINUE READING
