Miniaturisation of sensory systems in ants
The main focus of this thesis is the study of sensory systems in the context of changing body-size. In particular the study of ant sensory systems and how these are shaped by miniaturisation. The study of insect visual ecology and physiology is used as a basis to develop a framework for the study of ant antennal sensilla and chemosensation, to interpret anatomical variation from a functional and organ design perspective.
