Group and individual social network metrics are robust to changes in resource distribution in experimental populations of forked fungus beetles

Robin Costello, Phoebe Cook, Vincent Formica &
Social interactions drive many important ecological and evolutionary processes. It is therefore essential to understand the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that underlie social patterns. A central tenet of the field of behavioral ecology is the expectation that the distribution of resources shapes patterns of social interactions.

We experimentally manipulated the distribution of an essential food and...
