Effects of age and reproductive status on individual foraging site fidelity in a long-lived marine predator.

Abstract:

Individual foraging specialisations, where individuals use a small component of the population niche width, are widespread in nature with important ecological and evolutionary implications. In long-lived animals, foraging ability develops with age, but we know little about the ontogeny of individuality in foraging. Here we use precision global positioning system (GPS) loggers to examine how individual foraging site fidelity (IFSF), a common component of foraging specialisation, varies between...
