The influence of turbidity on three-spined stickleback foraging
Abstract:Three-spined sticklebacks Gasterosteus aculeatus were used as a model to test for the effects of turbidity on visual-predator foraging. While the number of feeding lunges and number of prey consumed did not change with increasing turbidity, reactive distance to prey decreased.
