Review Paper is Out !

Well, truthfully, it has been out for a couple of months now! But, I wanted to share it nonetheless. The review discusses the most current research (past 5 years) that evaluates the influence of predation risk on prey behavior and physiology in insect systems. These non-consumptive effects of predators on prey can have far-reaching implications on population growth of predators and prey as well as the overall community structure. We argue that while the evidence for these effects is there, the current research stops short by not considering longer-term field experiments. By increasing the spatial and temporal scale for which we understand these interactions will allow for stronger predictions and potential application in pest management! Check it out and let me know what you think!
