The Herbivore's Dilemma: to eat or be eaten?


20 February 2013

Herbivores are faced by the daily dilemma of whether to eat good food in risky places or poor food in safe places. Using Australian brushtail possums and African thick-tailed bushbabies, Associate Professor Clare McArthur demonstrates how animals choose between food and fear, and explores the implications of these choices on ecological populations and communities.

This talk is presented in conjunction with the exhibition The Meaning of Life: Celebrating 50 years of Biological Sciences at the University of Sydney.
