In nonhuman primate groups that utilize crop and food-raiding strategies, the inclusion of human food in the diet can have a pervasive impact on the activity budget. Human food is usually of higher quality and energy per unit than wild food. Thus, metabolic demands may be reached sooner on a human food diet, which in turn leads to improved foraging efficiency. In particular, a reduction in time spent feeding is associated with an increase in time spent resting. We investigated changes in time… CONTINUE READING
