prey availability

  • Different areas of the home range are used more frequently at different seasons and usually are related to prey availability.
  • Mating times for this species are highly dependent upon weather conditions and prey availability.
  • Other sources of variability in home range size include habitat requirements and prey availability.
  • Prey availability likely would have increased suddenly during the summer, but then declined in the dark winter, leaving predators with little to eat.
  • The increase in prey availability translates into higher energy intake and reduced energy output.
  • The larger fish on reefs tend to move between these reefs regularly, which is thought to be due to prey availability.
  • Reckless and extensive fishing that reduces their prey availability is a large factor.
  • Nest numbers and average clutch sizes are smaller in periods of reduced prey availability.
  • They have an exceptional ability to adapt to changes in prey availability, and have a very broad diet.
  • The dens are chosen based on a variety of factors, including prey availability, and have been observed in a range of habitats.
  • In these populations, the breeding season is determined by rainfall and consequent prey availability.
  • Their diet varies according to season, locality and prey availability.
  • The diet of the martial eagle varies greatly with prey availability and can be dictated largely by opportunity.
  • Fish taxa are flexible in their feeding roles, varying their diets with environmental conditions and prey availability.
  • Daily distance traveled may vary by age, gender, habitat quality, season, prey availability, traveling conditions, weather, and physiological condition of the individual.
  • Unlike the closely-related Canada lynx, the Eurasian species does not appear to be able to control its reproductive behaviour based on prey availability.
  • Emerald darters tend to feed during the day, and their diets largely depend on the time of year, as prey availability changes due to season.
  • The older coniferous forest is not needed just for escape from predation, prey availability, and den sites but also for thermoregulation.
  • Dredging can affect migration, population distribution and prey availability.
  • If reared in an environment with altered prey availability, the species has been found to show phenotypic plasticity or morphological differences in response to this changed environmental condition.
