“Prey Can Detect Predators via Electroreception in Air,” PNAS, May 20, 2024.

“We show predatory wasps are charged, thus emit electric fields & caterpillars respond to such fields with defensive behaviors.”

We provide “direct evidence for a driver of evolution by natural selection: ecologically relevant static electricity.”
