The Nutritional Geometry of Resource Scarcity: Effects of Lean Seasons and Habitat Disturbance on Nutrient Intakes and Balancing in Wild Sifakas

Fig 2

Macronutrient balancing in sifaka groups across seasons at Tsinjoarivo, Madagascar.

Right-angle mixture triangle (RMT) plots showing the proportional contribution of protein, fat and carbohydrates to macronutrient-derived energy intakes for five sifaka groups at Tsinjoarivo, Madagascar across five seasons (1, 4 and 5 represent the lean season). Fat and protein are represented on the y- and x-axes, respectively, and carbohydrate is represented by an implicit axis Z. For clarity, each plot has two “isolines” representing 60% and 80% carbohydrates, shown with dotted lines.
