A mechanistic model of functional response provides new insights into indirect interactions among arctic tundra prey

Andréanne Beardsell, Andréanne Beardsell, Dominique Gravel, Jeanne Clermont, Dominique Berteaux, Gilles Gauthier & Joël Bêty
Prey handling processes are considered a dominant mechanism leading to short-term positive indirect effects between prey that share a predator. However, a growing body of research indicates that predators are not necessarily limited by such processes in the wild. Density-dependent changes in predator foraging behavior can also generate positive indirect effects but they are rarely included as explicit functions of prey densities in functional response models. With the aim of untangling proximate mechanisms of species...
