Searching individuals need to take decisions on where and how long to search. When food is spatially aggregated, detection of a food item signals a probability for the presence of further prey items in its surrounding. Organisms can thus intensify search effort upon detecting a prey item, but after unsuccessfully searching for a while, return to the previous, extensive search, this strategy is known as 'area-concentrated-search' (ACS). Here we present results of simulations where individuals… CONTINUE READING
