Optomotor regulation of ground velocity in moths during flight to sex pheromone at different heights

Males of two species of moths (Grapholitha molesta (Busck) and Hehothis virescens (F )) were flown in a sustained-flight tunnel in horizontal pheromone plumes The up-tunnel velocity of the moths increased with increasing height of flight and for G molesta was independent of tunnel wind velocities Use of moving ground patterns verified that the height of… CONTINUE READING
