Adaptive foraging interacts with network structure to stabilize mutualistic networks
, 2016. 19: 1277–1286.
This paper integrates modeling and our field data from Colorado, and shows that “adaptive foraging”—behavioral plasticity in foraging intensity on different resources—is key for stabilizing pollination networks, but has different effects in networks with different structures.
Pollinator Specialization: from the Individual to the Community
, 2016. 210: 1190–1194. DOI: 10.1111/nph.13951
This review lays out why foraging choices in pollinators, at multiple scales, can drive important system properties including diversity-functioning relationships.

Determinism as a statistical metric for trapline foraging and other recurrent behaviors
Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology
, 2015. 69:1395–1404
Trapline foraging is a key behavioral tactic used by pollinators and many other groups of animals. This work develops a new method for measuring traplining—which has been notoriously challenging to quantify—borrowing quantitative tools from statistical physics.
