Homing strategies of the Australian desert ant Melophorus bagoti II. Interaction of the path integrator with visual cue information
Individually foraging ants are known to return to their nest by using path-integration and recording visual information present in the environment. The interaction between the path integrator and the information provided by the visual cues in an Australian desert ant are reported here. Ants were trained to travel in a 1-m wide and 20-m long corridor of cylinders.
