The Economics of Fleeing from Predators
Publisher Summary The chapter describes a simple economic model that predicts in a qualitative way on how costs (lost feeding opportunity and risk) interact to produce an optimal flight distance fromExpand

Protandrous arrival timing to breeding areas: a review
Protandry, the earlier arrival of males to breeding areas than females, is a common pattern of sex-biased timing in many animal taxa (e.g. some insects, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds andExpand

Neighbours, strangers, and the asymmetric war of attrition
Abstract The literature showing that territorial residents generally respond more intensely to an intrusion by a stranger than by a known neighbour is reviewed. The functional basis of thisExpand

Trade-offs, condition dependence and stopover site selection by migrating sandpipers
Western sandpipers Calidris mauri on southward migration fly over the Gulf of Alaska to the Strait of Georgia, British Columbia, where they stop for a few days to replenish reserves beforeExpand

The effect of personality on social foraging: shy barnacle geese scrounge more
Animals foraging in groups can either search for food themselves (producing) or search for the food discoveries of other individuals (scrounging). Tactic use in producer–scrounger games is partlyExpand

Western sandpipers have altered migration tactics as peregrine falcon populations have recovered
The presence of top predators can affect prey behaviour, morphology and life history, and thereby can produce indirect population consequences greater and further reaching than direct depredationExpand

Effects of Predation Danger on Migration Strategies of Sandpipers
We examine the potential selective importance of predation danger on the evolution of migration strategies of arctic-breeding calidrid sandpipers. Adult calidrids truncate parental care for reasonsExpand

Foraging : behavior and ecology
Foraging is fundamental to animal survival and reproduction, yet it is much more than a simple matter of finding food; it is a biological imperative. Animals must find and consume resources toExpand

The body size−burial depth relationship in the infaunal clam Mya arenaria
Larger infaunal organisms tend to be buried more deeply than smaller conspecifics, but the ultimate (natural selection) reasons for this have received little attention. A model to explain thisExpand

Food abundance and territory size in juvenile coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch)
Feeding territory size and potential food abundance were measured simultaneously in a field population of juvenile (40–50 mm) coho salmon. Territory size was inversely related to the density ofExpand
