E, deviation from the predicted angle. (2) marks the point where the dancing angle 48 ° coincides with the inclination of the local magnetic field, which is 42°. Upper abscissa Local zonal time. (MARTIN and LINDAUER 1977) 34 comb facing W, the misdirection disappeared at dancing angles that were the mirror images of the ones mentioned above, 25 0 right and 155 0 left (LINDAUER and MARTIN 1968). Since the inclination at the test site was 65 0, these findings mean that the bees dance without error when their dancing directions run parallel or antiparallel to the angle of inclination (or its projection, cf.

1). 2 Aligned Resting Positions of Diptera Several common species of flies seemed to prefer landing directions which corresponded to the N-S or the E-W axis (G. BECKER 1963). These field observations led to laboratory studies in which the body axes of flies resting on a horizontal plane were recorded by photography under isotropic light conditions (G. BECKER and SPECK 1964; G. BECKER 1965). The analysis showed a preference for the cardinal N-S and E-W axes for the blowfly Calliphora erythrocephala, and the housefly Musca domestica.

BECKER and SPECK 1964). Magnetic alignments thus might be related to the tendency of many animals to avoid local disturbances of the magnetic field and unnatural intensities (see Sect. 2). The significance of the cardinal directions to bees dancing on a horizontal comb in the absence of visual cues is also difficult to understand. There is no great benefit in this oriented dancing, because the purpose of waggle dances, namely, a transfer of directional information, cannot be achieved in this way; only the distance to the food source is still indicated by the frequency of waggling.
