Navigation, recruitment, foraging ecology and visual systems of the banded sugar ant, camponotus consobrinus
Each species inhabits a unique niche. These niches can be defined by biotic or abiotic factors and animals evolve adaptations and behaviours to successfully exploit their niche. In this study I explore the niche of the Banded Sugar Ant, Camponotus consobrinus. I characterise the daily activity of this species that forages along the branches of Eucalyptus trees, a complex 3D environment. This species is crepuscular/nocturnal thus exposed to both dim and bright ambient light conditions, and...[Show more]
