The magnetic field as a reference system for genetically encoded migratory direction in pied flycatchers ficedula hypoleuca

, : The magnetic field as a reference system for genetically encoded migratory direction in pied flycatchers ficedula hypoleuca. Zeitschrift fuer Tierpsychologie 60(1): 41-46

To see whether the migratory orientation of pied flycatchers (F. hypoleuca Pallas) is genetically encoded with respect to the earth magnetic field, a group of young birds was hand-raised. They were thus prevented from ever experiencing the sky. The birds were tested in autumn 1980 and 1981 in the local geomagnetic field and in 3 artificial fields. Their magnetic compass matures independent of any experience with the sky and contains sufficient information for the birds to orient toward their migratory direction.

Serotonin has no effects when bath-applied alone, but it modulates the D-glutamate-activ...
