Tasmanian devils, the largest marsupial carnivore, are endangered by a transmissible cancer. Two papers in this edition exploit changes in the abundance of Tasmanian devils to reveal their role in structuring the behaviour of competitors and prey. The introduction of Tasmanian devils to an island rapidly established a landscape of fear for prey, and changes in devil abundance had flow-on effects to the temporal activity patterns of other species.
