Abstract

This study analysed the effect of a sky optical factor to the precision of sun orientaion in sandhoppers. The effect of this sky factor explained the better orientation performance on the home beach than away of it. It also explained the results of previous laboratory experiments on the preference of blue light by sandhoppers.
