Does predation risk costs affect foraging of prey animals?
My hypothesis is that avoidance behavior will occur causing a decrease in foraging when white tail deer perceive the presence of wolves.
I will test this prediction utilizing food plots and cameras to observe white tailed deer and their avoidance to foraging when urine of wolves is present.
