Optimal escape theory generally assumes that animals have accurate information about predator distance and direction of approach. To what degree such information is available depends not only on the prey's sensory capabilities but also on its behaviour.

The ability of animals to collect and process information is therefore an important factor shaping predator avoidance strategies. Fiddler crabs, like many...[Show more]
