Arthropods as vertebrate brood predators: observations required

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I am currently looking into the prevalence and effects of arthropods as predators of vertebrate brood. To do so, I'm building a database consisting of observations of arthropods predating vertebrate young that are dependent on parental care, in terrestrial systems (think for example of nestlings in birds or young mammals).

So if you, during your field work or in your free time, have observed such a predation event (or know anyone who has), please share it with me with as much detail as possible!

Thanks in advance for your help
