Data from: Prey exploitation and dispersal strategies vary among natural populations of a predatory mite

Alexandra M. Revynthi, Martijn Egas, Arne Janssen & Maurice W. Sabelis
When predators commonly overexploit local prey populations, dispersal drives the dynamics in local patches, which together form a metapopulation. Two extremes in a continuum of dispersal strategies are distinguished: the “Killer” strategy, where predators only start dispersing when all prey are eliminated, and the “Milker” strategy, in which predator dispersal occurs irrespective of prey availability. Theory shows that the Milker strategy is not evolutionarily stable if local populations are well connected by dispersal. Using strains...
