Foraging Behaviors

  • Yang Cai

Abstract

Foraging is an instinctual behavior for living. It is a continuous activity to search surrounding areas for food either passively or actively. This requires the actions of hunting and gathering. Foraging is a broad search over an area in order to obtain something, whether it is ants looking for green leaves, bees scouting for flower pollen, or even people seeking specific information. Foraging describes how animals behave to satisfy their life-sustaining needs. In the cyberspace, foraging means to actively seek, gather, share, and consume information.
