What do predators really want? The role of gerbil energetic state in determining prey choice by Barn Owls

Keren Embar, & Burt P. Kotler
In predator–prey foraging games, predators should respond to variations in prey state. The value of energy for the prey changes depending on season. Prey in a low energetic state and/or in a reproductive state should invest more in foraging and tolerate higher predation risk. This should make the prey more catchable, and thereby, more preferable to predators. We ask, can predators respond to prey state? How does season and state affect the foraging game from...
