Computing for construal: an exploratory study of desert ant navigation

  title={Computing for construal: an exploratory study of desert ant navigation},
  author={Daniel Keer and Steve Russ and Meurig Beynon},
The study of ant navigation is a rich source of empirical data and speculative theories that has been well-documented in the scientific literature. We describe and illustrate how an approach to computer-based modelling ("Empirical Modelling") can be used to devise construals to support the exploratory experimental activities that inform an understanding of desert ant navigation.
