Moon orientation in adult and young sandhoppers

In the last 30 years, lunar orientation has received little attention from students of animal orientation. Even in Talitrus saltator, the first animals in which the lunar compass was demonstrated, research did not continue. Our studies have demonstrated that: 1) chronometrically compensated lunar orientation is independent of the earth's magnetic field (an ever present non-chronometric orientation reference); 2) lunar orientation is independent of the lunar shape; and 3) the lunar compass is also used by young animals born in the laboratory (without experience in nature).
