The paper reports on a novel, experimental test of recent theory linking predator hunting strategies (hunting mode and spatial movement) to prey mortality and antipredator spatial movement. The authors find that spider activity levels and hunting method do indeed predict grasshopper mortality, movement and space use – an important advance in the new trait-based approach to predicting community dynamics.
