Pheromone trail following in the antLasius niger: high accuracy and variability but no effect of task state

Czaczkes, Tomer J. ; Castorena, Martin ; Schürch, Roger ; Heinze, Jürgen


The use of pheromone trails in ant colony organization is an important model for understanding collective decision-making and complex adaptive systems. The ant Lasius niger L. (Hymenoptera: Fomicidae) is one of the main model organisms used for such studies. Key to understanding pheromone trail use by ants is knowing how well trails are followed. The results of a previous study suggest that L. ...
