(1997) Causation of the ontogenetic stereotypic development of stereotypic digging in gerbils. The dotted line indicates the direction of the cut. That's almost a quote from some of these people. While individuals in a population of adequate foragers may survive to reproduce, any mutant that happens to forage more efficiently will have more time and energy to spend on other things, such as avoiding predators or finding a mate, so will reap an immediate reproductive advantage. ‘Adequate-will-do’ is thus unlikely to be evolutionarily stable as a foraging strategy and will be toppled by more efficient alternatives.

The lab is a designated a time when you have access to materials that you will not have available during home study time. Searching strategies can be divided into two basic types: sit and wait, which is exemplified by orb-web building spiders and by certain snakes, such as rattlesnakes and, active searching, such as the hunting behavior of coyotes, dragonflies, and bats, and the foraging behavior of ungulates Many carnvivores combine elements of these two strategies, so that an actively hunting animal may pause and wait when it encounters a likely spot to find prey.
