Most other animals, however, rely on olfaction to find the remote food sources. Tracking down an odor source poses a particular challenge: Odors occur in turbulent plumes and break into thin filaments, and target odors intermingle with background odors (see the figure). On page 1515, Riffell et al. (1) choose an excellent model system—a foraging sphinx moth, Manduca sexta, searching for its nectar resource, the flowers of Datura wrightii—to shed light on how insects track odors in complex odor environments.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2014-11-26T09:05:37Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Szyszka, Paul</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
