Foraging and mating opportunities influence refuge use in the fiddler crab, Uca mjoebergi
Although many animals use refuges to avoid predators, it is often costly to do so. The longer an individual remains in a refuge, the less time it has available for other essential activities, such as foraging and mate searching. Animals should therefore optimize the time spent in a refuge after an attack by adopting a flexible approach to predator avoidance. I examined refuge use in the fiddler crab, Uca mjoebergi, under variable foraging and mating contexts on a mudflat in Australia. There...[Show more]
