Social and environmental factors in navigation

 

It stands to reason that navigation research (especially with social insects) will often have a behavioural ecology angle. Here are two examples where navigation studies have this focus and where the major questions concern the interaction between navigation and different types of environment (natural and human-influenced) or individual and colony level performance.
Leonhardt, S. D., Kaluza, B. F., Wallace, H., & Heard, T. A. (2016). Resources or landmarks: which factors drive homing success in Tetragonula carbonaria. Journal of Comparative Physiology A, 1-8.
Pasquier, G., & Grüter, C. (2016). Individual learning performance and exploratory activity are linked to colony foraging success in a mass-recruiting ant. Behavioral Ecology.
