Similarities and differences in path integration and search in two species of desert ants inhabiting a visually rich and a visually barren habitat
Two species of Australian desert ants, one inhabiting a visually rich environment (Melophorus bagoti) and one inhabiting a visually barren environment (as yet unnamed and dubbed Melophorus sp.), were tested on path integration and subsequent search. For each species, prominent landmarks were placed near the nest, and ants were trained to visit a feeder.
