Courtship herding in the fiddler crab Uca elegans: tracking control system
Animals with limited neural processing power require simple control systems for guiding behaviour. The fiddler crab Uca elegans uses both allocentric cues from the visual environment and egocentric cues from path integration to guide movements during courtship. As part of their courtship system, male U. elegans intercept moving females in a behaviour termed outward run. These outward runs require males to track the position of females visually, navigate towards them, and manoeuvre themselves...[Show more]
