Linking social foraging behaviour with individual time budgets and emergent group-level phenomena

Marshall, Harry H; Carter, Alecia; Rowcliffe, J. Marcus; Cowlishaw, Guy


A social group's time budget is an emergent property of individual-level decisions about how to allocate time. One fundamental determinant of these time allocation decisions is foraging success. Yet while there is a growing appreciation of how social animals optimize their foraging behaviour, our understanding of the mechanisms that link this behaviour with individual time use, and thus group-level time budgets, is relatively poor. In this review, we explore the current understanding of social...[Show more]
