Laura Prugh is an Associate Professor of Quantitative Wildlife Sciences at the University of Washington. There, she studies the dynamics of wildlife populations and communities, with a particular interest in facilitation, trophic interactions, and indirect effects. She joins Nate on this episode of The Show About Science to talk about mesopredators, apex predators and what we can learn by studying complex food webs.
