Prey experience of predation influences mortality rates at settlement in a coral reef fish, Pomacentrus amboinensis
Abstract:Previous exposure to predators influenced the survival immediately after settlement in a coral reef damselfish, Pomacentrus amboinensis. Rapid learning of antipredator behaviour may in part have driven the rapid increase in survival in the days following this critical transition.
