Organization of the olfactory pathway and odor processing in the antennal lobe of the ant Camponotus floridanus.

Abstract

Ants rely heavily on olfaction for communication and orientation. Here we provide the first detailed structure-function analyses within an ant's central olfactory system asking whether in the carpenter ant, Camponotus floridanus, the olfactory pathway exhibits adaptations to processing many pheromonal and general odors. Using fluorescent tracing, confocal… (More)
