Feedback form is now closed.
The capability of predators to generate behaviorally mediated indirect interactions via predation risk has been demonstrated in many ecosystems, as have multiple mechanisms responsible for such effects. However, a general framework predicting the ecological impacts of predation risk remains elusive. Barriers to such a framework include difficulty in predicting contexts under which predation risk is a dominant driver of ecosystem structure and function, as well as a limited understanding of how the role of predation risk changes across scales. Overcoming these barriers are essential to predicting the effects of predators (or their absence) in ecosystems.
