Experimental evidence of an age-specific shift in chemical detection of predators in a lizard

Head, Megan; Keogh, J Scott; Doughty, Paul


The risk posed by predation is one of the most fundamental aspects of an animal's environment. Avoidance of predators implies an ability to obtain reliable information about the risk of predation, and for many species, chemosensory cues are likely to be an important source of such information. Chemosensory cues reliably reveal the presence of predators or their presence in the recent past. We used retreat site selection experiments to test whether the Australian scincid lizard Eulamprus...[Show more]
