Rüdiger Wehner: a special issue

As hinted at in a previous post, a significant Birthday for Rüdiger Wehner has led to some tributes. In that spirit Ken Cheng and Bernd Ronacher have put together a special issue for the Journal of Comparative Physiology. Their editorial details the scope of the special issue and as the papers become available online I’ll blog about the findings and review topics.

The first paper, from Wahl et al., looks at the gait patterns of ants at different speeds. They find a consistency in the gait pattern, independent of speed, which might be adaptive in terms of maintaining a stable and regular odometer.
Wahl, V., Pfeffer, S. E., & Wittlinger, M. (2015). Walking and running in the desert ant Cataglyphis fortis. Journal of Comparative Physiology A, 1-12.

Cheng, K., & Ronacher, B. (2015). A champion of organismal biology. Journal of Comparative Physiology A, 1-3.
