Appendix S1. Derivation of the infinitely large population functional response equation (equation 3) and of a simplified approximation (equation 4).

Appendix S2. Proof that the balance equations for Markov chains of more than two predators can be simplified to a set of equations which say that for all connected states i and j the transition rate from state i to state j should be equal to the transition rate from state j to state i.

Appendix S3. Derivation of the finite population functional response equation (equation 6).

Appendix S4. Explanation of the maximum likelihood estimation procedure for the specific type of Markov chains discussed in this paper.
