What determines prey selection in owls? Roles of prey traits, prey class, environmental variables, and taxonomic specialization

Abstract

Ecological theory suggests that prey size should increase with predator size, but this trend may be masked by other factors affecting prey selection, such as environmental constraints or specific prey preferences of predator species. Owls are an ideal case study for exploring how predator body size affects prey selection in the presence of other factors due… (More)
