    Eric J Bergman
    Ecology Department, Montana State University, Bozeman, Montana 59717, USA
    Ecol Appl 16:273-84. 2006
    ..As such, vulnerability plays a central role in predator-prey behavioral games and can potentially impact the systems to which they relate...

    Scott Creel

    ..compensatory. Strong tests of these hypotheses will require continued development of methods to identify and quantify the fitness costs of antipredator responses in wild populations...

    Scott Creel
    Department of Ecology, 310 Lewis Hall, Montana State University, Bozeman, Montana 59717, USA
    Ecology 90:2454-66. 2009

    Scott Creel
    Department of Ecology, 310 Lewis Hall, Montana State University, Bozeman, MT 59717, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 106:12388-93. 2009
    ..Overall, the effect of wolf presence on elk reproduction is better explained by changes in foraging patterns that carry nutritional costs than by changes in glucocorticoid concentrations...

    Scott Creel
    Department of Ecology, Montana State University, Bozeman, MT 59717, USA
    J Anim Ecol 78:1291-7. 2009

    Scott Creel
    Department of Ecology, Montana State University, Bozeman, MT 59717, USA
    Trends Ecol Evol 23:194-201. 2008
    ..Risk effects and direct effects do not necessarily change in parallel. When risk effects reduce reproduction rather than survival, they are easily mistaken for limitation by food supply...

    Department of Ecology, Montana State University, 310 Lewis Hall, Bozeman, MT 59717, USA

    Scott Creel
    Department of Ecology, Montana State University, Bozeman, MT 59717, USA
    Mol Ecol 12:2003-9. 2003
    ..These genotyping errors created several genotypes per individual and caused overestimation (up to 5.5-fold) of population size. We propose a 'matching approach' to eliminate this overestimation bias...

    David Christianson
    Department of Ecology, Montana State University, Bozeman, Montana 59717, USA
    Ecology 91:1184-91. 2010
    ..Nutritionally mediated risk effects may be important for understanding predator-prey dynamics in wild populations, but such effects could be masked as bottom-up forces if antipredator responses are not considered...
