Fear as an ecosystem engineer

Here is a link to a fascinating article by Cristina Eisenberg, conservation biologist at Oregon State University.

Eisenberg writes about "whether the vigilance of ungulates—such as elk, deer and other hooved animals— varies based on wolf population dynamics or other environmental factors that can influence predation risk."

Artist of the Week: Angela Cater

I'm going to take an opportunity from time to time to showcase artists who either specialize in wolf or cat art, or who are just cool artists who happen to make wolves or cats, among other things.

Today I want to direct your attention to artist Angela Cater of Manchester, England. Angela has created the most wonderful felines, and her Portrait of a Tigress recently won FanArtReview's "Art in Nature" competition.

Please visit Angela's site and admire her beautiful art! If you find that you just have to have some of it for yourself, I'm sure she will be happy to help you!
