Trait-dependency of trophic interactions in zooplankton food webs

Florian Vincent, Andrea Bertolo, Gérard Lacroix, Maud Mouchet & Eric Edeline
Anthropogenic change in the abundance or identity of dominant top predators may induce reorganizations in whole food webs. Predicting these reorganizations requires identifying the biological rules that govern trophic niches. However, we still lack a detailed understanding of the respective contributions of body size, behaviour (e.g., match between predator hunting mode and prey antipredator strategy), phylogeny and/or ontogeny in determining both the presence and strength of trophic interactions. Here, we address this question by measuring...
