The biogeochemical effects of predation: synthesis and direction for ecological prediction

Feedback form is now closed.
Top-down forces of predators through consumption, injury, and risk effects are well-studied. Emerging evidence demonstrates that predators have the potential for bottom-up effects through nutrient regeneration, matter transport, and physical habitat alteration. However, we lack a mechanistic understanding of the potential feedbacks of these roles and their effect on our ability to predict the structure and function of ecological systems. 1) How might predators influence biochemical processes; 2) What might be the scale and impact of these changes on community structure and ecosystem function; 3) How do these effects interact with their roles as consumers?
