Harry H. Marshall, Alecia J. Carter, Alexandra Ashford, J. Marcus Rowcliffe and Guy Cowlishaw How do foragers decide when to leave a patch? A test of alternative models under natural and experimental conditions Journal of Animal Ecology 82
This paper provides rare empirical tests of competing models of patch-departure decisions in natural and field-experimental foraging conditions. It shows that foragers' patch-departure decisions may depend on the characteristics of the environment, and that in some environments simpler models can provide a good description of this behaviour.
