Abstract

In the 2008 article "A Review of Feral Cat Control," Robertson explored the trend developing in the management of so-called "feral" cats away from lethal methods toward the non-lethal method of trap-neuter-return (TNR). The review explored various issues raised by the presence of these unowned,...

Abstract

Background: Since larval cannibalism is frequently observed in intensive rearing systems, the regeneration of lost legs is common for the beneficial species Coccinella septempunctata (Coccinella: Coccinellidae) to adapt to the competitive environment, but whether functional recovery occurs in the...

Abstract

Preytaxis is the attraction (or repulsion) of predators along prey density gradients and a potentially important mechanism for predator movement. However, the impact preytaxis has on the spatial spread of a predator invasion or of an epidemic within the prey has not been investigated. We...

Abstract

Present study assessed if semiochemical cues left by an aphidophagous beetle, M. sexmaculatus influenced foraging behaviour of a phytophagous beetle, Z. bicolorata on noxious weed, P. hysterophorus. The lower predation attributes of Z. bicolorata in presence of M. sexmaculatus semiochemical...

Abstract

Invasive predators can disrupt important predator-prey dynamics thereby facilitating invasions into prey communities. Lower latitude food webs can have strong consumer pressure and top-down control due to trophic complexity, however, and thus could be more robust to alterations by introduced...

Abstract

Prey recognition is vital for predation and the survival of carnivores. In theory, carnivores recognize prey by instinct or learning. However, the instinct hypothesis has little support. In addition, it remains unknown if prey recognition capability correlates with personality. Here, we test if...

Abstract

Species' population dynamics are influenced by a variety of abiotic and biotic factors. Curtsdotter et al. (2019) used a food web model to investigate the role of predator-prey interactions in the population dynamics of the bird cherry-oat aphid Rhopalosiphum padi. Their analysis hinged on linking...

Abstract

We tested the effect of the native container-dwelling predator Toxorhynchites rutilus on the codominant container-dwelling mosquitoes: native Aedes triseriatus and invasive Aedes japonicus. We established two predator treatments (predator, no predator) by removing T. rutilus from all containers,...

Abstract

Studies of habitat selection are crucial for the conservation of threatened amphibians. Wild salamanders are often distributed near rocks or vegetation, which provide shelter. However, nothing is known about habitat selection of the Mexican axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum), an endangered salamander of ...

Abstract

The effects of water turbulence on rotifer communities were experimentally studied under different predation pressures. When the larvae of the phantom midge (Chaoborus flavicans) were present in turbulent water, the abundance of most rotifer taxa was enhanced. Especially the genera Chromogaster, ...
