Early ant trajectories*

This is a real treat from JCPA this week Ruediger Wehner has written a really engaging account of early pioneers in the study of ant navigation. The paper considers the lives and experiments of Victor Cornetz, Felix Santschi, Charles Turner and Rudolf Brun who are rarely cited in our navigation papers. Also considered is Ramon y Cajal, who is certainly famous, but not for his ant research. The paper is a joy to read and provides some nice touches in considering the interpretations of these pioneers relative to modern arguments. What are you waiting for?

*I couldn’t think of a better title than the title of the paper itself, “Early ant trajectories”. Lovely.
