Roxanne S Beltran, A Marm Kilpatrick, Greg A Breed, Taiki Adachi, Akinori Takahashi, Yasuhiko Naito, Patrick W Robinson, Walker O Smith, Amy L Kirkham, Jennifer M Burns,

Seasonal resource pulses can have enormous impacts on species interactions. In marine ecosystems, air-breathing predators often drive their prey to deeper waters. However, it is unclear how ephemeral resource pulses such as near-surface phytoplankton blooms alter the vertical trade-off between predation avoidance and resource availability in consumers, and how these ...
