... the importance of nutrient balance (P:C) 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...

As foraging behaviour is a key factor for niche partitioning of co-existing species, we compared nectar extraction behaviour and efficiency at different flower depths among sympatric bat species with different degrees...

For example, species within these two broad groups tend to forage on similar types of prey, such as krill, fish and squid, and exploit similar ocean habitats(for reviews, see Warham,1990 ; Williams...

The experimenter controlled the prey encounter rate (PER) by varying the spacing of prey items on the conveyor belt. PER was held constant within a given dive, but changed randomly between dives...
