New paper on NCE in oysters accepted to MEPS

Our new paper on how non-consumptive effects are impacted by predator biomass and might impact oyster aquaculture has been accepted to MEPS! You can view the abstract and eventual pre-press article here.  Using standard aquaculture techniques, we showed that oysters respond more strongly to changes in predator number than predator size. These effects can slow growth upwards of 10% in caged oysters, which are often thought of as "protected" from predators.
