Studies have linked variation in feeding and foraging success to variation in survival and reproductive success, which makes exploring influences on feeding invaluable. In the current study, we quantified energy contents of foods consumed by wild golden lion tamarins (Leontopithecus rosalia, GLT) and feeding behaviors of 34 GLT from March 1998 to March 1999. Our objective was to test predictions regarding effects of characteristics of the 1) individual, 2) group, 3) environment, and 4) other… CONTINUE READING
