PhD Thesis

started in Apr 2014
Ant navigation within an olfactory landscape
Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena, Biologisch-Pharmazeutische Fakultät
First Supervisor: Prof. Dr. B.S. Hansson
Co-Supervisor(s): Dr. M. Knaden

Olfactory-based navigation in the desert and Cataglyphis fortis is a well investigated system. When orienting along olfactory cues ants depend also on wind characteristics like wind speed and direction. Based on this we are now using behavioural approaches in the field to investigate the interplay of olfaction and use of wind cues in further detail.
