In selecting a particular individual of a prey species a predator may utilize cues that are much more subtle than those dealt with in the preceding chapter on prey recognition. Morphological cues involved may be so minute (e.g. Mason, 1965) as to shed doubt on the assumption that they offer the true cues for discrimination. But one has to bear in mind that these may be furnished by more obtrusive cues associated with them, for example behavioral ones.
