Predatory cannibalism in Drosophila melanogaster larvae

Nature Communications

May 9, 2013

Roshan K VijendravarmaTadeusz J Kawecki

Abstract

Hunting live prey is risky and thought to require specialized adaptations. Therefore, observations of predatory cannibalism in otherwise non-carnivorous animals raise questions about its function, adaptive significance and evolutionary potential. Here we document predatory cannibalism o...read more
