C. Total Response of Predators





Ii do mammalian predators regulate prey populations8 l.jpg
II. DO MAMMALIAN PREDATORS REGULATE PREY POPULATIONS?

B. Wolves and Ungulates

  • Declining caribou, moose, Dall sheep populations in Yukon

  • Experimental reduction of wolves over 5 years

II. DO MAMMALIAN PREDATORS REGULATE PREY POPULATIONS?

B. Wolves and Ungulates

  • Declining caribou, moose, Dall sheep populations in Yukon

  • Experimental reduction of wolves over 5 yrs

  • Wolf predation was

    • reducing recruitment of caribou & moose calves

    • reducing adult survival of moose

C. Weasels

  • and voles in western USA

  • and voles in Russian crop ricks

A. Lynx and Hares

  • During peak hare year:

III. INTERACTION OF PREDATION AND COMPETITION

B. Wildebeest and Lions-Hyenas

1. Predation-sensitive food hypothesis (PSFH)

2. Predator regulation hypothesis (PRH)

3. Surplus prey hypothesis (SPH)



Iv indirect effects of predators on prey l.jpg
IV. INDIRECT EFFECTS OF PREDATORS ON PREY

  • Indirect effect:

    • Effect of one species on another is mediated through a third


Iv indirect effects of predators on prey16 l.jpg
IV. INDIRECT EFFECTS OF PREDATORS ON PREY

  • Example: Iberian lynx

    Egyptian mongoose

    European rabbit

  • Rabbits preyed upon: 5-10 fold increase in absence of lynx

  • Rabbit density: 2-4 fold lower in areas without lynx


V the concept of compensatory effects l.jpg
V. THE CONCEPT OF COMPENSATORY EFFECTS

  • Compensatory Mortality

    • Substitution of mortality agents


V the concept of compensatory effects18 l.jpg
V. THE CONCEPT OF COMPENSATORY EFFECTS

  • Compensatory Mortality

    • Substitution of mortality agents

    • Example: deer in predator-removal area


V the concept of compensatory effects19 l.jpg
V. THE CONCEPT OF COMPENSATORY EFFECTS

  • Compensatory Mortality

    • Substitution of mortality agents

    • Example: woodchucks in Pennsylvania


V the concept of compensatory effects20 l.jpg
V. THE CONCEPT OF COMPENSATORY EFFECTS

  • Other Types of Compensation

    • Example: woodchucks on a hunted site

      • increased survival of juveniles

      • reduced emigration of juveniles

      • increased fertility of yearling females
