10). This relationship holds for prey that do not flush early because of the monitoring cost of fleeing. While monitoring predators, prey may not be able to devote sufficient attention to efficiently detect their own cryptic prey (Dukas & Kamil 2000). 12a). The curve for a prey incurring no monitoring cost of fleeing is the highest of a family of such curves. For any two cost of fleeing curves, the curve will be lower for a prey incurring greater monitoring cost. 12a). The cost of fleeing curve is lowered progressively as the degree of impairment of ability to obtain benefits while monitoring increases.

Factors affecting intra- and inter-specific variations in the difference between alert distances and flight distances for birds in forested habitats.

This total fitness is discounted by the increasing probability of being captured as the predator draws nearer. The distance at which expected fitness is maximized is the optimal flight initiation distance, d*, which decreases as the maximum benefit, B* (obtained by not fleeing), increases and increases as initial fitness increases. The remaining parameter is dd, the predator–prey distance when the prey detects the predator and can start accumulating benefits. Modified from Cooper and Frederick (2007a) fitness by kin selection that are retained if the prey is killed, the equation becomes F(d) = [B(d)] + [F0 – E(d)][1 – e−cd], 0 ≤ d ≤ dd.
