The big surprise is that 1C are daring to bring it to consoles almost unchanged. Already the greatest combat flight sim on the PC, IL-2 is a game made by Russians for the hardest of the hardcore. Months wasted with the PC game have taught us giganto-respect for 1C. Sturmovik is the best flight sim ever, and though the console announcement is low-key, you can already trust that the game will be one of the best titles of Sep 12, Can be read as a stand-alone, but I'd strongly advise you read at least Novice Prey first. A character from Female Prey and The Elusive Prey are referred to in this book, so you may want to go back and read those as well, but they're not as key to the story as Novice Prey.

This is another story about another strong, independent woman testing herself in numerous ways: endurance, physical strength and speed, mentally, and sexually. After having Well written with just a couple of editing issues. Beyond improving on her first performance eluding capture, she hasn't thought much about what she wants out of the experience.

Ultimately, her captors know better what she wants than she's allowed herself to envision. There are many disturbing things that happen in Gordburg, but most of them are observed by the character. She has her own challenges after capture, but never more than she can ultimately handle.

Individuals were collected by inspecting nests of Mogrus found on different shrub species mainly Retama retama , Artemisia monosperma , and Thymelaea hirsuta. Mogrus individuals Fig. Only 1. Some females of Poecilochroa collected in the field produced egg-sacs in the lab. Hatched juveniles were also used in experiments along with individuals collected in the field. All spiders were fed at least once a week with Drosophila flies ad libitum or were allowed to consume the prey accepted in laboratory trials to standardize their satiation level.

All statistical analyses were performed in the R environment To investigate the fundamental trophic niche of Poecilochroa , prey acceptance experiments 43 were performed with 39 juvenile Poecilochroa individuals. Spiders were starved for one week before being used in trials. Each prey type was offered to each individual spider only once. If the prey was not attacked within one hour, it was replaced with a different prey type.

The trial ended when a spider had killed and consumed a prey. If a spider did not accept any prey type, it was considered to be unmotivated to eat e. Trials were performed at one-week intervals for each individual.

It was used because there were repeated measurements on each individual spider An autoregressive correlation structure AR1 for replicated observations over time was used to account for these temporal replications. Subsequently, the relative frequency of the acceptance of each prey type was compared to the average prey acceptance for all prey types using a binomial test. Values of B A higher than 0. To measure the capture efficiency for differently sized prey, wolf spiders Pardosa sp.

If the prey was not accepted within one hour, it was replaced by a smaller one on average two times smaller than the previous prey item. If a spider did not accept smaller prey, it was considered to be unmotivated to eat and such data were discarded. In total, 84 trials with 37 juvenile individuals of Poecilochroa were performed.

The logit model with binomial distribution using GEE was used to fit the binary data, as there were repeated measurements on each individual spider.

An AR1 correlation structure was used to account for the temporal replications. In addition, 45 trials using freshly hatched first instar juveniles of both Poecilochroa and Mogrus were performed.

One week before the experiment, each spider was fed with a Drosophila fly. Subsequently, the hunting success of Poecilochroa or Mogrus was recorded. To find how Poecilochroa penetrates jumping spider nests, interactions between Poecilochroa and Mogrus were staged on Mogrus nests. Female Mogrus and Poecilochroa spiders were fed five days before the trials with Drosophila flies ad libitum.

Nest usurpation: a specialised hunting strategy used to overcome dangerous spider prey

Then, a female or juvenile Poecilochroa was introduced on the branch above the nest and the interactions between the two spiders were recorded on a camcorder Canon Leigra HF R The recording ended one hour after the introduction of Poecilochroa. The effect of the relative sizes of the prey and predator on usurpation success was analysed using GEE. The logit model with binomial distribution and an AR1 correlation structure was used to account for temporal replications, as several Poecilochroa individuals were used more than once.

The capture efficiency on Mogrus was compared with that of wolf spiders as prey. In addition, 19 observations were conducted of Poecilochroa behaviour in response to empty Mogrus nests. Then, female or juvenile Poecilochroa spiders, fed five days before the trials with a surplus of Drosophila flies, were introduced into the boxes with empty nests. To observe how Poecilochroa can overcome spider prey, predatory encounters between Poecilochroa and Mogrus were staged. The mean prosoma size ratio of Mogrus and Poecilochroa spiders in this experiment was 1. Spiders were fed five days before trials with Drosophila flies ad libitum.

Then, the two tubes, one hosting Poecilochroa and the other hosting Mogrus , were connected by their openings and the interaction between the spiders was video-recorded. In total, 34 complete hunting sequences out of 37 recordings were obtained. Piriform silk on captured Mogrus individuals was visualized by means of fluorescent dye following the protocol by Johnson et al.
