Pedro Barbosa, Ignacio Castellanos's Ecology of Predator-Prey Interactions PDF

This booklet addresses the basic problems with predator-prey interactions, with an emphasis on predation between arthropods, which were higher studied, and for which the database is extra huge than for the big and infrequent vertebrate predators. The booklet should still entice ecologists drawn to the extensive factor of predation results on groups.

Sample text

A bribe would ensure that they didn’t look at the paperwork and didn’t ask any awkward questions, but we must not make matters more difficult by using words in their presence that they didn’t want to hear. The first official we were going to see was a senior guy in the management hierarchy of the Ghanaian government wildlife department. We were to go to his office the next day and we were to be as pleasant 20 SEE NO EVIL, HEAR NO EVIL as could be. If our business was to progress, we had to get on with this very big cheese, Ernie said.

We listen and make mental notes of the key points, then wear the gear next time when we’re much less likely to be frisked. We picked our table in the bar with great care, finding one out of the way, quiet, in a corner so we could see what was going on around us, but with good lighting. We worked out our camera angles and rehearsed our cover story and our parts in it.

She was quite offended when it was explained to her that dried ostrich heads made terrible bedside lamps. Seeing as he was laughing so much, I extracted 50 pence worth of Ghanaian money out of Bryn and grandma seemed happy with that, happy enough anyway we hoped not to change herself into a vulture and perch on our hotel window sill.
