The role of learning in the feeding behavior of antlions
Although previous research has demonstrated that insects are indeed capable of responding to a learned food signal, those studies focused mainly on insects with active methods of predation. The present study investigated ...
Discrimination Learning in Antlions (Neuroptera: Myrmeleontidae): Learning to Differentiate Prey from Non-prey
Associative learning has been demonstrated in many insects, including pit-digging larval antlions (Neuroptera: Myrmeleontidae). Nonetheless, the role of discrimination learning in antlions has yet to be explored. This ...
The Effect of Associative Learning on Antlion Feeding Behavior and Fitness
Previous research has demonstrated that a variety of insects are capable of responding to learned cues; however research has yet to analyze the effect of learning in predators that do not use active foraging methods to ...
The Role of Learning In An Insect Predator-Prey Relationship
Previous research has shown that larval antlions, Mrymeleon crudelis Walker, a type of sit-and-wait predator, are capable of using a learned cue to anticipate the arrival of prey before they fall down the steep sides of ...
The Role of Associative Learning in the Feeding Behavior, Development, and Fitness of Antlions
Previous studies have established the importance of associative learning in actively foraging insects, including bees, wasps, flies, grasshoppers, cockroaches, and locusts. This observation of learning in such a wide range ...
