Abstract

One of the advantages of colonial breeding may be the enhanced foraging efficiency through the location of colony. In a patchy environment a colonial breeder may experience a shorter distance between the nest and an average food patch than an average dispersed breeder. To develop a model of a predator moving by random walk in a patchy foraging area, the author found that: 1) the nest location in a bounded area influenced sufficiently the mean flight distance, and 2) growing patchiness increases this distance. -from Author
