Animals commonly choose among habitats that differ both in foraging return and mortality hazard. However, no experimental study has attempted to predict the level of increase in resources, or the decrease in mortality hazard, which will induce a forager to shift from a safer to a more hazardous (but richer) foraging area. Here we present and test a model that specifies the choice of foraging areas ("habitats") that would minimize total mortality risk while allowing collection of some arbitrary… CONTINUE READING
