1 Path integration in desert ants, Cataglyphis fortis. (a) Path integration during foraging: vector summation results in a continually updated home vector. 5-min homeward run were recorded in a North African salt pan. Time marks (small black dots) are given every 60 s. (b) Vector subtraction during enforced detours. An individually marked ant having performed straight outbound runs (dotted line) was forced away from its direct homeward route by two barriers. Each time it had recovered from the imposed detour, it reoriented directly towards the goal.
