    Frank, Shane C.; Blaalid, Rakel; Mayer, Martin; Zedrosser, Andreas; Steyaert, Sam (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
    Animal carcasses provide an ephemeral pulse of nutrients for scavengers that use them. Carcass sites can increase species interactions and/or ephemeral, localized landscapes of fear for prey within the vicinity. Few studies ...
