Link flexibility: Evidence for environment-dependent adaptive foraging in a food web time-series (2016)
Journal Article
Henri, D. C., & van Veen, F. J. F. (2016). Link flexibility: Evidence for environment-dependent adaptive foraging in a food web time-series. Ecology, 97(6), (1381-1387). doi:10.1890/15-0827.1

Temporal variability in the distribution of feeding links in a food web can be an important stabilising factor for these complex systems. Adaptive foraging and prey choice have been hypothesised to cause this link flexibility as organisms adjust thei... Read More
