Abstract

Recent research on ants shows that running in tandem might serve the function of teaching naïve ants about the path to a target. Although these new experiments represent perhaps the most highly controlled study of teaching in animals to date, the findings prompt the question of how teaching formally differs from other forms of communication. © 2006 Elsevier Ltd.
