predation
Explanation:
Example:
Populations of bluegill sunfish Lepomis macrochirus, experiencing heavy juvenile predation, showed increased growth rates and increased age and size at maturity relative to populations experiencing decreased predation on juveniles but increased predation on adults. (http://www.uga.edu/srel/Reprint/1979.htm)

What does 'predation' mean?
An example of interspecific association between species that may be positive or negative. Positive predation occurs when predator populations fluctuate in positive response to variations in prey.
Negative predation occurs when high predator population densities produce a local population depression of prey.
