...) and concentration (P+C) on female foraging behaviour. We measured the oviposition preferences of females in multiple-choice (cafeteria) assays and manipulated the nutritional state of females to test the relative importance of oviposition and feeding in food choices. Next, we examined the consequences of female...

Because wing wear has elsewhere been shown to increase mortality, this study provides an important mechanism linking foraging behaviour with lifespan. * Author for correspondence...
