Lay Summary Rising temperatures impose a behavioral trade-off on Alpine ibex because cooler, higher altitude areas have poorer quality, less abundant vegetation. Many species use behavioral strategies to regulate their temperatures, such as ibex moving upslope when it is hotter. Our study shows that such behaviors can negatively affect other key activities such as foraging. As the climate warms, heat-sensitive species will face a precarious balancing act between thermoregulation and acquiring… CONTINUE READING
