How Do Ants Make Sense of Gravity? A Boltzmann Walker Analysis of Lasius niger Trajectories on Various Inclines
These quantities are computed over 69 trajectories for each inclination. The inclination has a major impact on the motion speed, which in turn induces longer residence times. However, since ants move straighter towards the upper or lower edges when the inclination is steeper, their total trajectory length within the disks is lowered.
