  • What is antisymmetric predation?
  • Is laterality frequency really fluctuate?
    • If so, what is mechanism of fuluctation?

  • [Nonspecific defense] effective against both predator species (types) 1 & 2;
  • [Partly-specific] partly effective against 2;
  • [Perfect-specific] not effective against 2 at all;
  • [overly-specific] riskier against 2 than when it pais no attention to any predator.

three types of asymmetries van valen 1962

“Antisymmetry”

Fluctuating asymmetry (FA)

Directive asymmetry (DA)

Three types of Asymmetries(van Valen 1962)

antisymmetry in fishes
Antisymmetry in fishes
  • Scale-eating cichlid in Lake Tanganyika
  • Lefties feed on scales of the left side, righties feed on scales of the right side
  • Frequency dependent natural selection
    • Hori 1991 Science 267:
  • Maintained by predator-specific defense
antisymmetry
Antisymmetry

Mud Fiddler Crabs (Uca pugnax) have antisymmetry in pincers

  • Bimodal distribution of laterality in crabs, snails, …
  • Maintained by sexual selection
  • Few reports of antisymmetry maintained by predation
more story in fish laterality
More Story in Fish Laterality….
  • Another Tanganyikan fish has lateral asymmetry (Mboko et al. 1998: Zool. Sci. 15)
  • A fresh water goby has lateral asymmetry in a Japanese river(Seki et al. 2000: Zool. Sci. 17)
  • Many fishes and other aquatic invertebrates have lateral antisymmetry! (Hori unpublished)
  • In these fishes, lefty is dominant heritage.
  • Far too counterintuitive!
  • We need more evidence and theoretical reason...
righty predators eat lefty prey and vice versa
Righty predators eat lefty prey, and vice versa.
  • Lefties of scale-eating fish feed only on left side scales of lefties, righties feed only on right side scales of righties (Hori 1993 stomach contents, unpublished lab experiment).
  • Circa 75% of the stomach contents of righty and lefty piscivorous predators (Lamprologus spp.) were the lefty and righty, respectively (Hori unpublished field data).

definition of antisymmetric predation
Definition of Antisymmetric Predation
  • Both prey and predator have anti-symmetric traits (laterality);
  • “Lefty” predators feed on “righty” prey; “Righty” predators feed on “lefty” prey.

  • Does it really fluctuate?

  • Does it really synchronize?
  • If so, what mechanism promote fluctuation?

Is evidence still short?
  • If frequency fluctuates, this is non-random sampling over several years.
  • This is an evidence for either
    • Existence of antisymmetric predation or
    • Existence of laterality frequency fluctuation

our model results
Our model results
  • Under the perfect anti-symmetric predation, no force (“friction”) to stabilize a 1:1 laterality ratio exists.
  • Omnivory destabilizes 1:1 laterality ratio and enhances a stable limit cycle (coexistence with fluctuation).
    • Nakajima, Matsuda, Hori (in review)
why did laterality evolve
Why did laterality evolve?
  • Scale-eaters first evolved laterality, because they attack either side scales.
  • “Prey” needed to evolve laterality to improve predator-specific defense
  • …What story is possible in the absence of scale-eaters???
  • Measure quantitative trait in laterality
