Data from: Field measurements give biased estimates of functional response parameters, but help explain foraging distributions

Sjoerd Duijns, Ineke E. Knot, Theunis Piersma & Jan A. Van Gils
1. Mechanistic insights and predictive understanding of the spatial distributions of foragers are typically derived by fitting either field measurements on intake rates and food abundance, or observations from controlled experiments, to functional response models. It has remained unclear, however, whether and why one approach should be favoured above the other, as direct comparative studies are rare. 2. The field measurements required to parameterize either single or multi-species functional response models are relatively easy to...
