KefootCharles Kerfoot (Bio Sci) with Susan C. Savage was published in “Limnology and Oceanography“.
The article covers experiments done on anti-predation defenses in a group of cladoceran taxa over 20 years, both in the New World and Old (Max Planck Center for Limniology, Ploen, Germany). The article emphasizes the importance of evolution in aquatic food webs, and begins to explain why exotic predators may have disproportionate effects on naive prey species. [From Tech Today]
