Unadulterated foraged food may stand on its own, but a little creativity and ingenuity transforms it into an endless array of other products.
If the foraged food trend became more popular there may be justifiable concern that wild ecosystems already burdened and stressed by exploitation could not fulfill demand without being depleted of resources.
A counter argument to those who advocate completely abandoning the foraged food trend to preserve the environment is that in our market-driven society, sometimes the best way to preserve something is to prove its profitability.
RCWs foraged more frequently in the mid-crown and high-crown areas of trees ([[chi square].
During the breeding season, RCWs in Louisiana foraged more frequently on smaller pine stems (< 40 cm dbh) than during the nonbreeding season (Jones and Hunt, 1996).
They foraged on baldcypress (Taxodium distichum) in greater proportion than availability during the nonbreeding season (DeLotelle et al.

2001), willets, members of the medium scolopacids guild, foraged the majority of time during our study.
In our study, members of the sandpiper guild foraged the majority of time within all habitats when suitable shoreline was exposed.
The White-browed Conebill had the more narrow niche position in foliage closer to the ground, a more narrow niche breadth, and foraged within a narrow range of dense vegetation cover.
The White-browed Tit-spinetail and Tit-like Dacnis foraged higher above the ground and lower below the canopy and occupied a wider niche position within the guild.
The Giant Conebill foraged higher above ground and higher in trees than the Creamy-crested Spinetail.
Woodpecker groups foraged extensively on pines dying of southern pine beetle (Dendroctonus frontalis) and engraver beetle (Ips spp.
Typically, all group members foraged together in the infested tree(s) for substantial periods.
Breeding and helper males in longleaf pine forest foraged on significantly smaller diameter stems than breeding and juvenile females.
