The sheer variety of strategies employed by animals to avoid being seen by predators led Conover (wildland resources, Utah State U.) to wonder whether a similar range of tactics have developed for hiding from predators that hunt by smell. He examines the mechanics of olfaction and predator predator

He then discusses the physics of airflow to locate those areas where prey can successfully hide and investigates if they actually do so. Finally, he discusses the implications of his findings for broader ecological ecological
