Fig. 3: The association between G. cornutus mandible size (mm) and likelihood of predation by A. venator.

The graph shows that as mandible size increases so does the likelihood of predation. The curve is the fitted frequency from the GLM with dot size representing numbers (1–6) of individual G. cornutus (i.e., larger dots = more beetles). Inset shows an A. venator about to attack a male G. cornutus. Note the size difference. Source data are provided as a Source Data file.
