Paper published! Animal water balance drives top-down effects

Dr. McCluney recently published a paper in Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Science that extends his previous work and tests if animal water balance can drive top-down effects in open-air food webs [download post-print here orĀ email Dr. McCluney for a free copy of the published manuscript]. This research highlights the importance of moisture availability in altering the effect of predators on prey, with cascading effects on vegetation. The work was conducted by Dr. McCluney as a post-doc at Arizona State University and subsequently revised and published while at BGSU. Ongoing research by Dr. McCluney and by PhD student Jamie Becker is expanding on this work.
