New paper published in Ecology: Invasive prey indirectly increase predation on their native competitors
A new paper by me and my coauthor Kevin Hovel is now in press at Ecology. In a series of field experiments, we have demonstrated that invasive prey can indirectly increase predation rates on native competitors by changing the behavior of shared native predators. Interestingly, however, the magnitude of apparent competition strongly depends on the vulnerability of natives to predation. A PDF is available here.
