Abstract

Social foraging allows groups of predators to search for, pursue, and capture prey with greater efficiency than using solitary hunting. It can vary in complexity and take many forms ranging from cooperative hunting, to social information sharing and local enhancement (Lang and Farine 2017). Theoretical and empirical studies support the advantages of group foraging, although there will be trade‐offs between benefits, such as increased prey detection or capture success, and costs such as increased competition amongst group members (Gil et al. 2017).
