... integration Odometry Formica rufa One attraction of researching insect navigation is the opportunity that it offers to understand memory processes in an animal with a brain that is considerably smaller than that of most vertebrates. Consider a desert ant, such as Cataglyphis fortis , that forages...

... of animal species. The same is true for senses of direction – the compasses for navigation – and the construction of vectors for navigation from compass and distance cues. The measurement of distance itself – odometry – has received much less attention. The present review addresses some recent progress...

... disturbed walking odometry These results demonstrate that homing performance of desert ants, Cataglyphis fortis , is remarkably resistant to disturbances of walking behaviour, at least with regard to distance measurements, even though distance estimation is probably that component of the ants...

... the hypothesis that bees rely exclusively on deposited scent to accurately localise a food source in natural foraging environments. We instead conclude that odometry and scent guidance contribute to honeybee food search in a manner reflecting the significance and relative reliability of sensory information...

...Tony Vladusich; Jan M. Hemmi; Mandyam V. Srinivasan; Jochen Zeil SUMMARY How do honeybees use visual odometry and goal-defining landmarks to guide food search? In one experiment, bees were trained to forage in an optic-flow-rich tunnel with a landmark positioned directly above the feeder...
