Effect of an immune challenge on the anti-predator response of the green Iberian frog (Pelophylax perezi): The influence of urban habitats

Iglesias-Carrasco, Maider; Head, Megan; Cabido, Carlos

Description

Previous studies suggest that immune-challenged individuals need to allocate resources to the immune system to combat infection, reducing escape ability and increasing the vulnerability of infected individuals to predators. Such behavioural responses might change in anthropogenic habitats where the balance between predation risk and countering infections can differ from that in natural habitats. We experimentally explored whether fighting an infection has an effect on hiding behaviour in a frog...[Show more]
