  author={Tiffany M. Knight and Michael W. McCoy and Jonathan M. Chase and Krista A. McCoy and Robert D. Holt},
Predation can be intense, creating strong direct and indirect effects throughout food webs. In addition, ecologists increasingly recognize that fluxes of organisms across ecosystem boundaries can have major consequences for community dynamics. Species with complex life histories often shift habitats during their life cycles and provide potent conduits coupling ecosystems. Thus, local interactions that affect predator abundance in one ecosystem (for example a larval habitat) may have… CONTINUE READING
