Can variation in prey density drive changes in predatory selection in natural systems? For salmon and brown bears, yes

Curry J. Cunningham, Gregory T. Ruggerone, and Thomas P. Quinn
How does the availability of food affect the selectivity of the consumer? It has long been known that survival of prey can depend on their density, as predators become satiated or cannot catch them all. In addition, many studies have shown that predators are selective, tending to kill and consume some species or sizes of prey over others, but very few are examples of prey density driving patterns of selection by predators.

Microb Ecol. 2012 Nov;64(4):1064-72
Authors: Friedman CS, Crosson LM
Abstract
Studies on the ecology of microbial parasites and their hosts are predicated on understanding the assemblage of and relationship among the species present. Changes in organismal morphology and physiology can have profound effects on host-parasite interactions and associated microbial community structure.
