All organisms must find and consume resources to live, and the strategies an organism uses when foraging can have significant impacts on their fitness. Models assuming optimality in foraging behavior, and which quantitatively account for the costs, benefits, and biological constraints of...
Behaviours capture the functional response of plants to environmental factors. I explore behaviours for twenty co-occurring grassland species in response to common belowground environmental factors (competition, mycorrhizae, heterogeneous and high nutrients) and their relationship to plant...

Relationships among diverse root foraging behaviours: understanding plant behavioural types - supporting dataDownload
These are the supporting data for the University of Alberta MSc thesis: Belter, Pamela R. 2014. Relationships among diverse root foraging behaviours: understanding plant behavioural types.
All organisms, including plants, experience variability in the environment which puts pressure on organisms to evolve flexible responses. The study of these responses by organisms falls into the discipline of behavioural ecology. In this thesis, I am interested in the foraging behaviour of plant...
