SCAVENGING AND ITS POSSIBLE EFFECTS UPON PREDATION - A SELECTIVE REVIEW OF LITERATURE
A literature search and personal communication with many field workers across North America suggests that predation may be affected to varying degrees by scavenging. Scavenging as a phenomenon practiced by predators and non predators is discussed. A clarification of terminology associated with predation and scavenging is attempted and examples from the literature are summarized. Factors affecting recognition and importance of scavenging are discussed.
