Description

Thanks to the University of Minnesota for sponsoring this video! http://twin-cities.umn.edu/
The decisions we make while we browse the internet are suprisingly similar to the ones animals make as they forage for food...here's why.

Thanks also to our Patreon patrons https://www.patreon.com/MinuteEarth and our YouTube members.

Optimality models: tools used to evaluate the costs and benefits of different organismal features, traits, and characteristics, including behavior, in the natural world.
Optimal foraging theory: a behavioral ecology model that helps predict how an animal behaves when searching for food.
Marginal value theorem: an optimality model that describes the strategy that maximizes gain per unit time in systems where resources, and thus rate of returns, decrease with time.
Central place foraging: a model for analyzing how an organism traveling from a home base to a distant foraging location can maximize foraging rates.
