Abstract Orientation toward and away from shore (y-axis orientation) plays an important role in the daily and seasonal movements of amphibians. A variety of studies have shown that amphibians use both celestial cues and the geomagnetic field for y-axis orientation. However, few studies have addressed how quickly amphibians are able to learn the direction of a new shore. In the present laboratory-based experiments, we show that the Eastern Red-Spotted Newt, Notophthalmus viridescens, is able to… CONTINUE READING
