Optimal web investment in sub-optimal foraging conditions

Harmer, Aaron M.T.; Kokko, Hanna; Herberstein, Marie; Madin, Joshua

Description

Orb web spiders sit at the centre of their approximately circular webs when waiting for prey and so face many of the same challenges as central-place foragers. Prey value decreases with distance from the hub as a function of prey escape time. The further
