Despite many benefits, social learning may be disadvantageous when independent learning is more efficient. For example, searching independently may be more advantageous when food sources are ephemeral and unpredictable. Individual differences in cognitive abilities can also be expected to influence social information use. Specifically, better spatial memory can make a given environment more predictable for an individual by allowing it to better track food sources. We investigated how resident food-caching chickadees discovered multiple novel food sources in both harsher, less predictable high elevation and milder, more predictable low elevation winter environments. Chickadees at high elevation were faster at discovering multiple novel food sources and discovered more food sources than birds at low elevation. While birds at both elevations used social information, the contribution of social learning to food discovery was significantly lower at high elevation. At both elevations, chickadees with better spatial cognitive flexibility were slower at discovering food sources, likely because birds with lower spatial cognitive flexibility are worse at tracking natural resources and therefore spend more time exploring. Overall, our study supported the prediction that harsh environments should favour less reliance on social learning.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/53751/1/Heinen_2-1ue8xw1fvz9sp8.pdf"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>Food discovery is associated with different reliance on social learning and lower cognitive flexibility across environments in a food-caching bird</dcterms:title> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-05-26T07:11:26Z</dc:date> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/53751/1/Heinen_2-1ue8xw1fvz9sp8.pdf"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Pravosudov, Vladimir V.</dc:creator> <dcterms:issued>2021-05-26</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Farine, Damien R.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Pitera, Angela M.</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/53751"/> <dc:contributor>Pitera, Angela M.</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:contributor>Pravosudov, Vladimir V.</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Heinen, Virginia K.</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/43615"/> <dc:contributor>Bridge, Eli S.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-05-26T07:11:26Z</dcterms:available> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
