Data from: Seed perishability determines the caching behaviour of a food-hoarding bird

Eike Lena Neuschulz, Thomas Mueller, Kurt Bollmann, Felix Gugerli & Katrin Böhning-Gaese
1. Many animals hoard seeds for later consumption and establish seed caches that are often located at sites with specific environmental characteristics. One explanation for the selection of non-random caching locations is the avoidance of pilferage by other animals. Another possible hypothesis is that animals choose locations that hamper the perishability of stored food, allowing the consumption of unspoiled food items over long time periods. 2. We examined seed perishability and pilferage-avoidance as potential drivers...
