This is the first comprehensive review of the topic in more than twenty years. A monumental undertaking, this volume brings together 22 experts from throughout the field to offer the latest on the mechanics of foraging, modern foraging theory, and foraging ecology. The 14 essays cover all the relevant issues, including cognition, individual behavior, caching behavior, parental behavior, anti-predator behavior, social behavior, population and community ecology, herbivory, and conservation. Considering a wide range of taxa, from birds to mammals to amphibians, Foraging will be the definitive guide to the field.
