Visual recognition and coevolutionary history drive responses of amphibians to an invasive predator

Andrea Melotto, Gentile Francesco Ficetola, Elisa Alari, Samuele Romagnoli & Raoul Manenti
During biotic invasions, native prey are abruptly exposed to novel predators and are faced with unprecedented predatory pressures. Under these circumstances, the lack of common evolutionary history may hamper predator recognition by native prey, undermining the expression of effective anti-predatory responses. Nonetheless, mechanisms allowing prey to overcome evolutionary naïveté exist. For instance, in naïve prey, history of coevolution with similar native predators or recognition of general traits characterizing predators can favor recognition of stimuli released...
