Individual differences in risk‐taking affect foraging across different landscapes of fear

Philip O. M. Steinhoff, Bennet Warfen, Sissy Voigt, Gabriele Uhl & Melanie Dammhahn
One of the strongest determinants of behavioural variation is the tradeoff between resource gain and safety. Although classical theory predicts optimal foraging under risk, empirical studies report large unexplained variation in behaviour. Intrinsic individual differences in risk-taking behaviour might contribute to this variation. By repeatedly exposing individuals of a small mesopredator to different experimental landscapes of risks and resources, we tested 1) whether individuals adjust their foraging behaviour according to predictions of the general tradeoff...
