Abstract and Keywords
Arthropods are a much-studied group of animals. They include insects, spiders, and hard-shelled invertebrates such as crabs. This chapter reviews four broad topics on the navigational behavior of arthropods. The first is path integration, the ability to keep track of the straight-line distance and direction from one’s starting point. The second is route behavior, in which landmarks figure in various ways. The third is the use of landmarks, both to chart an initial course and to pinpoint a target. The fourth is map-like navigational behavior. The chapter presents an overview including some classic work and current trends and issues.
