ABSTRACT Animal movement decisions involve an action–perception cycle in which sensory flow influences motor output. Key aspects of the action–perception cycle involved in movement decisions can be identified by integrating path information with measurement of environmental cues. We studied mate searching in insects for which the primary sensory cues are mechanical vibrations traveling through the tissues of living plants. We mapped search paths of male thornbug treehoppers locating stationary… Expand
