Interactions of visual odometry and landmark guidance during food search in Honey bees

Vladusich, Tony; Hemmi, Jan; Srinivasan, Mandyam V; Zeil, Jochen

Description

How do honeybees use visual odometry and goal-defining landmarks to guide food search? In one experiment, bees were trained to forage in an optic-flow-rich tunnel with a landmark positioned directly above the feeder. Subsequent food-search tests indicated that bees searched much more accurately when both odometric and landmark cues were available than when only odometry was available. When the two cue sources were set in conflict, by shifting the position of the landmark in the tunnel during...[Show more]
