... reported abilities of seals to estimate distances ( Maaß and Hanke, 2021 ) and to keep a straight path ( Vance et al., 2021 ). Our results thus allow the formulation of new hypotheses on landmark orientation or orientation/navigation in general to be tested in the future in an attempt to explain the well...
