1. Scorpions can orient menotactically to horizontal air currents (Fig. 1). 2. Changing the wind velocity from 0,05–0,1 m/sec to 3–5 m/sec has no influence on the menotactic angle kept by an anemomenotactic oriented scorpion (Fig. 2). 3. The receptors percieving the direction of air currents are the trichobothria. 4. Orientation to horizon landmarks, anemomenotactic and astromenotactic orientation does not exclude each other but complete themthelves mutually: Scorpions can orient menotactically… CONTINUE READING
