Ale and Whelan review indirect effects of apex predators through mesopredator release and illustrate the importance of trait-mediated diversity cascades in directing conservation efforts. Recent studies have linked this genre of conservation concerns (e.g., loss of predator diversity) to the ecology of infectious disease, highlighting the human health consequences of biodiversity loss [ 118 ]. The truth about cats and dogs: assessment of apex- and mesopredator diets improves with reduced observer uncertainty. Journal of Mammalogy 100, pp. 410–422.

As the second test species, we selected the common radish (Raphanus sativus L.), which is a widespread crop plant commonly used in toxicity testing of heavy metals, such as cadmium (Vitoria et al Trophic cascades theory has shown the importance of predation as a limit to population size for a variety of taxa (top–down control). The largest of predators however are unlikely to be limited in this fashion, and their densities are commonly assumed to be determined by the availability of their prey (bottom–up control). However, bottom–up regulation of apex predators is contradicted by 1. Introduction. The modern marine megafauna (MM) includes all marine mammals, seabirds, sea turtles and sharks, apex consumers that influence their associated ecosystems (Lewison et al., 2004), both pelagic and nearshore, through top-down forcing and trophic cascades, and now severely affected by human impact (Estes et al., 1998, Estes et al., 2011, Estes et al., 2016).
