    Liana Y Zanette
    Department of Biology, University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario N6A 5B7, Canada
    Science 334:1398-401. 2011
    ..Our results suggest that the perception of predation risk is itself powerful enough to affect wildlife population dynamics, and should thus be given greater consideration in vertebrate conservation and management...
  3. doi request reprint Food supplementation leads to bottom-up and top-down food-host-parasite interactions
    Liana Zanette
    Department of Biology, University of Western Ontario, London, ON N6A 5B7, Canada
    J Anim Ecol 79:1172-80. 2010
    ..One of the conservation implications of our results is that greater food availability may not provide hosts a respite from brood parasitism, but is, nonetheless, beneficial overall...
  4. pmc Food-supplementing parents reduces their sons' song repertoire size
    Liana Zanette
    Department of Biology, University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario N6A 5B7, Canada
    Proc Biol Sci 276:2855-60. 2009
    ..Conceivably, the conservation benefits of food-supplementing populations could attenuate over time if fed parents produce offspring of poorer quality than themselves...
  5. pmc Synergistic effects of food and predators on annual reproductive success in song sparrows
    Liana Zanette
    Department of Biology, University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario N6A 5B7, Canada
    Proc Biol Sci 270:799-803. 2003
    ..These results are a cause for optimism for avian conservation because they demonstrate that remedial actions, aimed at simultaneously augmenting food and reducing predators, can produce dramatic increases in reproductive success...

    Liana Zanette
    Department of Biology, University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario N6A 5B7, Canada

    Department of Biology, University of Western Ontario, N6A 5B7 London, Ontario, Canada
    Oecologia 147:632-40. 2006

    Proc Biol Sci 275:1061-5. 2008
    ..Our results support the recently proposed hypothesis that signalling in parasitized nests involves a dynamic interaction between parasitic and host nestlings, rather than a one-way process of mimicry by the parasite...
