Description Wirsing will present a study about bull sharks. These predators may induce numerous direct and indirect effects in food webs. Most studies of these effects have used a “species”-based approach, i.e., individuals within a predator species have the same trophic niche (network of trophic interactions). This approach could mask important variation in the way predator individuals affect community and ecosystem properties. Studies are needed addressing the possibility that top-down effects might...
