To forage you have to find food

This paper is perhaps a bit of a wild card but it certainly intriguing. Most of the navigation that we study involves foraging insects bringing food back to their nest or hive, obviously this requires that you find food in the first place. In this paper, the authors look at the food-discovery latency for ants with different search strategies and morphologies.
