Stachelameise. Künstlich hervorgerufener Nestumzug. Spezifische motorische Aufforderungssignale erfolgreicher Kundschafterinnen, Stimulierung und Tandemlauf, Anlocken der Folgerin aus einem Tandempaar mit verschiedenen bewegten Attrappen. Verdeutlichung zusätzlicher chemischer Signale. Mit Zeitdehnung.
The film shows tandem running behaviour in Bothroponera tesserinoda in normal speed and slow motion (64 B/s). During an experimentatly initiated nest movement, scouts recruit nest mates to a new nest site, by the tandem running technique. By a series of different dummy experiments it can be demonstrated that tandem running behaviour is organized by a combination of motor patterns and mechanical and chemical signals.
