Abstract

Sciurus niger and S. carolinensis foraged more frequently, but less efficiently, during a year of fruit failure than during a typical year. Juvenile survival of both species was reduced during fruit failure, but adult survival remained high. Juvenile losses occurred during late June when weights of adults and juveniles were lower than in the year of typical fruit abundance. -from Author
