|Title||Social Behaviour: Social foraging in wild guppies (Poecilia reticulata)|
|Description||For several years we have conducted social foraging experiments with individually-marked guppies in Trinidad and collected video data. The most recent field season was cut short by the Corona crisis but we were still able to collect videos for three different populations that still need to be analysed. From previous years we have already analysed videos available from a fourth population (under different experimental set-ups). Possible projects involve population comparisons in food detection and consumption or to investigate more detailed social foraging mechanisms (across populations).
