    Prey often adopt antipredator strategies to reduce the likelihood of predation. In the presence of predators, prey may use antipredator strategies that are effective against a single predator (specific) or that are effective against several predators (nonspecific). Most studies have been...

    We consider the optimal behavior of a cryptic prey individual as it is approached by a predator searching for prey. Although the predator has not yet discovered the prey, it has an increasing likelihood of doing so as it gets closer to the prey. Further, the closer the predator is to the prey...

    Although predator-prey interactions among higher organisms have been studied extensively, only few examples are known for microbes other than protists and viruses. Among the bacteria, the most studied obligate predators are the Bdellovibrio and like organisms (BALOs) that prey on many other...

    The spectacular properties of liquid helium at low temperature are generally accepted as the signature of the bosonic nature of this system. Particularly the superfluid phase is identified with a Bose–Einstein condensed fluid. However, the relationship between the superfluidity and the...

    The article discusses several court cases on sexually violent predators (SVPs) in the U.S. It examines the case of Calvin Ticeson who claims that his right to public trial was violated under article I, §22 and §10 of the Washington Constitution when it was ruled during a civil commitment...

    The article reflects on the disclosure by Detroit Auxiliary Bishop Thomas Gumbleton and the chasm between abuse survivors and Bishops. His duty was to think about the children and the victims who followed the Bishop's personal experience. He kept to himself the knowledge about a fellow priest...

    Habitat loss and fragmentation in tropical areas have long been presumed to reduce avian nesting success due to increased predation rates. Nevertheless, this prediction remains largely untested in tropical areas, because empirical data on the impacts of forest fragmentation on nest predation at...

    Accumulating and maintaining sufficient energy reserves is critical for winter survival of birds. Because high fat levels are assumed to be associated with higher risk of predation, birds have been hypothesized to regulate their body mass as a trade-off between risk of starvation and risk of...

    Transverse confining stress in concrete members, commonly provided by transverse reinforcement, has been recognized to enhance strength and ductility. Nowadays, the confining method has been further developed to external confinement approach. This type of confinement can be used for retrofitting...
