Dung beetles follow the Milky Way
London, UK (SPX) Jan 29, 2013
You might expect dung beetles to keep their "noses to the ground," but they are actually incredibly attuned to the sky. A report published online in Current Biology, a Cell Press publication, shows that even on the darkest of nights, African ball-rolling insects are guided by the soft glow of the Milky Way. While birds and humans are known to navigate by the stars, the discovery is the first convincing evidence for such abilities in insects, the researchers say. It is also the first known example ... read more
