14. Predatory mites protect own eggs against predators.

Predators frequently compete with other species for prey but can also interact by preying on each other's vulnerable stages. Because eggs and juveniles are more vulnerable to this intraguild predation than adults, their survival will depend on maternal strategies to reduce predation risk. Recently, ...
