... on multiple visual cues independent of their migratory context. Navigation Insect Vision Sun compass Landmarks Lepidoptera Despite their tiny brains, insects exhibit incredible orientation behaviors that range from simple compass orientation ( Byrne et al., 2003 ; el Jundi et al., 2019...

...Cody A. Freas; Ajay Narendra; Ken Cheng ABSTRACT Ants use both terrestrial landmarks and celestial cues to navigate to and from their nest location. These cues persist even as light levels drop during the twilight/night. Here, we determined the compass cues used by a nocturnal bull ant, Myrmecia...

... to varying degrees at different times. In summary, the bees in Experiment 2 were transplanted between sites with dissimilar landmarks and skylines, and their dances were very poorly but not randomly oriented. The bees clearly did not detect the sun's actual location, but approximately half of the bees...

... loggers, this study sought to examine the effect of previous directional training of 40 homing pigeons when they were released over the sea, in the absence of proximal landmarks, in a direction almost perpendicular to that of previous training flights. Our results demonstrated that previous directional...

... as a reference by which bees adopt a fixed orientation from which they study the skyline, just as the magnetic field serves in the learning of local landmarks at a feeder( Collett and Baron, 1994 ), and as it may serve in the learning of natural scenes in general( Frier et al., 1996 ). Unique to the bees...

... by distant landmarks. We suggest that an ant's ability to take such novel landmark-guided routes after displacement is a by-product of the robustness of normal route-following and is unlikely to reflect the ant's use of a map-like knowledge of its surroundings. ant navigation landmarks novel routes...
