In a first-of-its-kind study, James Cook University scientists have discovered a mosaic mix of marine zones could benefit populations of prey fishes.
Spiders living together in colonies of tens of thousands can go extinct from sharing food equitably, finds new UBC research.
The world's top land carnivores such as tigers, lions and jaguars are coming under threat as their prey dwindles in number, according to the first global study of feeding patterns.
We humans are affecting nature to a greater and greater degree and this is contributing to the reduction of biodiversity globally. To better assess the consequences requires a better understanding of the environmental conditions ...
If there's an upshot to the appearance of invasive species, it's that they might provide an additional food source for the native animals whose territory they are invading.
Why aren't there more lions? That was what puzzled McGill PhD student Ian Hatton, when he started looking at the proportion of predators to prey across dozens of parks in East and Southern Africa. In this case, the answer ...
A new eavesdropping study of bats and katydids provides evidence that sensory differences can influence the "evolutionary arms race" between predators and prey.
For a few months now, sea lion pups have been stranding on the coast of Southern California. So many have washed up, emaciated and exhausted, that marine mammal care centers can scarcely hold them all. But while most people ...
It's not just the people that make Newfoundland unique; it's the animals too—both the native species and those that come-from-away.
A new study by University of Michigan biologists suggests that some predatory marine cone snails evolved a highly diverse set of venoms that enables them to capture and paralyze a broad range of prey species.
