This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Adaptability gives species an edge in surviving environmental changes both big and small But how different species adapt together isn’t always clear For instance, how do predator and prey adjust their interactive behavior in the face of climate change? A new predator-prey model provides some clues Researchers looked at how tweaks to offensive and defensive strategies affected predator-prey populations under two types of disturbances -- Short-term perturbations, such as extreme weather events And permanent perturbations, such as climate change They found that fast adaptation can hold population dynamics steady against these disturbances But in some cases, adaptation can worsen the effects of perturbations This finding suggests that understanding perturbation type, target, and strength matters -- Strengthening the need for tailored approaches to ecosystem management in changing environments Raatz et al..."

The rest of the transcript, along with a link to the research itself, is available on the resource itself.
