Finally, and which cannot always correct earlier suboptimal choices. the high temperature reduced behavioral consistency while Environmental change may nevertheless lead individuals to acclimation increased it, suggesting that consistency is im- relocate to another site, although such relocations can be en- paired by unfavorable environmental change. To conclude, ergetically costly or risky. Temperature and illumination are while an environmental change usually affects several envi- two important factors that undergo change in seasonal and ronmental factors simultaneously, the induced behavioral daily cycles that may impact habitat quality.
