The effects of temporal variation in predation risk on anti-predator behaviour: an empirical test using marine snails.

Abstract

Foraging animals must often balance the conflicting demands of finding food and avoiding predators. Temporal variation in predation risk is expected to influence how animals allocate time to these behaviours. Counterintuitively, the proportion of time spent foraging during both high- and low-risk periods should increase with increasing time exposed to high… (More)
