Abstract

FORAGING STRATEGIES IN INDIVIDUALLY SEARCHING ANTS, CATAGLYPHIS BICOLOR (HYMENOPTERA: FORMICIDAE) by R. WEHNER, R. D. HARKNESS & P. SCHMID-HEMPEL, 1983. Gustav Fischer Verlag Stuttgart-New York. 79 pp. DM 34.-. This first volume in the series INFORMATION PROCESSING IN ANIMALS (edited by Martin Lindauer) contains an interesting article on the foraging behaviour of the ant Cataglyphis bicolor. The study is rather exceptional, in that two populations have been studied simultaneously in quite different habitats, as far apart as Greece and Tunesia. The authors give a detailed description of the foraging behaviour, with data on how foraging activities are distributed in space and time, on encounter rates with food items, on food composition and on the foraging ranges of individual ants. Then they describe experiments in the field on how the ants navigate, showing that the ants use vector navigation and visual landmarks to find their ways. Finally they discuss how the foraging behaviour relates to the distribution of food in the habitat. In several ways, the book gives more than the title suggests: there is chapter on the taxonomy of the species, and a colourful map illustrates the distribution of the species.
