Title: Red in tooth and claw: how top predators shape terrestrial ecosystems
Authors: Johnson, C.N.
Year: 2010
Citation: Volume: 79
Issue: 4
Abstract: Top predators are increasingly recognized as important regulators of ecosystem structure. Elmhagen et al. in this issue show how a recolonizing population of lynx in Finland is in the process of imposing control of the abundance of a mesopredator, the red fox and relaxing predation pressure on a prey species. Their study shows how ecological restoration programs could use the power of top predators to limit mesopredator populations and control total predation pressure on prey species.
