For example, this predation risk is of prime importance in determining the time of evening emergence in echolocating bats. Group living can decrease the risk of predation to the individual in a variety of ways, as described below. A dilution effect is seen when animals living in a group "dilute" their risk of attack, each individual being just one of many in the group.
Crepuscular animals are those that are active primarily during twilight (that is, the periods of dawn and dusk). This is distinguished from diurnal and nocturnal behavior, where an animal is active during the hours of daylight or the hours of darkness, respectively.

predation risk: birds were always predicted to retrieve their caches primarily during the late afternoon with a small peak in the morning. Highest mortality was pre-dicted with predation risk decreasing from morning to evening whereas lowest mortality was predicted with predation risk increasing from morning to evening. By defini-tion, crepuscular predators increase the risk of predation in the morning and evening compared to midday (Lima 1988). There might be several reasons why the risk of predation may change within the day during different seasons.
Here, we evaluated the influence of predation risk and habitat of origin on aggressive interactions. To this extent, we reared larvae from cave (scarce resources; nearly-absent predators) and surface (abundant resources and predators) populations under different risk conditions and measured aggressive behavior towards conspecifics. However, prey can navigate the landscape of fear by exploiting temporal refuges from predation risk. Specifically, we evaluated habitat selection and activity of the vicuña and its only predator, the puma, during three diel periods: day, dawn/dusk, and night.
Predation by M. xanthus is thought to be mediated by the secretion of extracellular hydrolases and antibiotics, which then act on nearby prey cells causing their lysis. M. xanthus is able to predate upon various Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, as well as fungi, with predatory range and efficiency seemingly species and strain-dependent (Morgan et a. 2010; Pham et a. 2005; Rosenberg and Varon, 1984). This approach has been productive and has revealed a great deal about the behavioral and physiological responses of prey to immediate risk. Despite the ubiquity, utility, and tractability of this approach, it is important to keep in mind that the behavior of prey only constitutes half of a predator–prey interaction.
For the atmospheric optical effect, see crepuscular rays. Look up crepuscular animal in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. An adult firefly (Photuris lucicrescens) or "lightning bug" – a crepuscular beetle. Crepuscular animals are those that are active primarily during twilight (. the period immediately after dawn and that immediately before dusk). It is thus to be distinguished from diurnal and nocturnal behavior where an animal is active during the hours of daylight or the hours of darkness respectively. Thus, the crepuscular habit may both reduce predation pressure, thereby increasing the crepuscular populations, and in consequence offer better foraging opportunities to predators that increasingly focus their attention on crepuscular prey until a new balance is struck. Such shifting states of balance are often found in ecology.
2014) when predation risk was increased. The discrepancies among these results highlight the need for further tests. crepuscular, diurnal, nocturnal) and during the nesting cycle (Libsch et al. 2008; Biancucci and Martin 2008; Weidinger 2010). Predators may have different preferences or abilities to handle nest contents, such as in the case of highly specialized egg-eating snakes (. Gartner and Greene 2008) or raptors that may prefer to eat nestlings over eggs (Cox et al.
