The world according to Jochen

We all know Jochen Zeil as a vociferous advocate of a style of neurethology where animals are studied behaving in their natural environment – as the naturalness is what allows us to understand the evolved relationship between brain, behaviour and environment. A necessary component of this approach is to try and quantify the sensory information available to animals as they behave. Something which Jochen has pioneered for visual navigation studies. In this review paper, Jochen showcases the style of current visual homing studies and draws attention to the next big questions in our field. This is a timely paper, which will no doubt be cited widely as the manifesto for a certain type of science.
