7 Many decades, huge area – spatially and temporally extensive cycling

8 More direct data on population density (not simply the harvest data)

9 The data align well with Lotka-Volterra Predator-Prey Model predictions

10 Year Abundance (Biomass) But might in reality be more complicated than LV model…

11 Experiment in decline phase of cycle with food supplementation and control.

12 Effects of predator exclusion and food Supplementation on ADULT SURVIVAL

13 Effects of food supplementation and predator exclusion on REPRODUCTION

14 The data confirm that this is largely a single predator – single prey cycle (with minor complications) ~2 hare kills per 3 days at peak of cycle

15 Generalist predator Prey switching in decline phase of prey Decouple the dynamics of predator and prey – breaks down LV cycles
