Analyse par digitalisation d'images du comportement d'affouragement d'une fourmi attine : application aux tests de choix

Abstract : A new method is described for the automatic recording and analysis of foraging behaviour in the leaf-cutting ant Acromyrmex octospinosus (Reich). This method had various applications in relation to preference tests. The setup involved a micro-computer linked to a video camera. The behaviour analysed was selection of "confetti" (leaf-discs cut from various plant species or filter-paper discs treated with extracts to be tested) placed randomly on a grid. The advantages and limitations of this method are discussed.
