- Saccadic movement strategy in a semiaquatic species – the harbour seal (Phoca vitulina)
Summary: Harbour seals perform head and body saccades, which have previously only been described for terrestrial species; thereby, they might optimize distance estimation from optic flow or reduce motion blur.
- Role of the different eyes in the visual odometry in the wolf spider Lycosa tarantula (Araneae, Lycosidae)
Highlighted Article: The wolf spider Lycosa tarantula uses both lateral and substratum information to return home. Lateral information is gathered by the posterior lateral eyes; substratum information is gathered mainly by the anterior lateral eyes.
- Wind alters landing dynamics in bumblebees
Summary: Wind alters bumblebee landing performance and may preclude optic flow-based strategies for control of landing speed.
