Abstract:
Hoogloand, Morris and Tinbergen (1957) demonstrated that the spines of two species of sticklebacks, Gasterosteus aculeatus and Pygosteus pungitius, are an effective defence against the pike (Esox lucius) and perch (Percha fluviatilis) as predators, and the present study was undertaken to compare the fright behaviour (i.e. responses to a predator) of the same two species.
