The feeding responses of decapod crustaceans to chemical stimuli have most often been evaluated in terms of one defining act, ignoring the organization of the behavior. To gain greater insight into foraging behavior, we considered the organization of food-search behavior in evaluating the responses of two species of crayfishes to a feeding stimulant. We also examined the effects of food deprivation on the behavioral organization and whether a behavioral dichotomy exists between food search and… CONTINUE READING
