Table S1. Summary of resource selection function, residency-time and interpatch-movement analyses for 250 virtual foragers following one of the six resource-use strategies in a landscape comprised of three patch types (poor, medium, rich) randomly distributed in equal proportions across a foodless matrix. The strategies involve a combination of patch-departure rules [Fixed-quitting-harvest-rate (QHR), Fixed-time or Fixed-amount] and interpatch movements (Random or Biased). For RSF and residency-time analyses, selection was evaluated with respect to medium-quality patches. A positive coefficient for the RSF implied relative selection, whereas a negative coefficient indicated relative avoidance. For residency-time analysis, a positive coefficient indicated a relatively high probability of leaving a patch of a given type (hence, a relatively short residency time), whereas a negative coefficient revealed a relatively low probability of patch departure. For interpatch-movement analyses, partial G-values of transitions were represented for each strategy. Positive partial G-values for a given interpatch transition indicated more frequent movements than expected randomly, whereas a negative value meant less frequent movement

Table S2. Resource selection functions of 250 virtual foragers estimated based on a paired design for which 10 random locations were drawn within a 25-cell radius circle of each observed location. Foragers were following one of the six resource-use strategies in a landscape comprised of three patch types (poor, medium, rich) randomly distributed in equal proportions across a foodless matrix. The strategies involve a combination of patch-departure rules [Fixed-quitting-harvest-rate (QHR), Fixed-time and Fixed-amount] and interpatch movements (Random and Biased). Selection was evaluated with respect to medium-quality patches. A positive coefficient implied relative selection, whereas a negative coefficient indicated relative avoidance
