However, in understanding the evolutionary sensory ecology of the many
information channels used by particular organisms, we are confronted with
exactly these issues. What are the ... The study of such organism-specific
measures of relevant information is aimed at the development of a predictive
theory applicable to the evolution of sensory channels in both biological and
artificial systems. We also briefly ...

This paper reviews the sensory ecology of orientation and migratory behavior in
scyphomedusae, with an emphasis on data from Aurelia aurita. Adaptive
explanations for complex behavior of individuals must be evaluated at the
population level in order to assess their ecological importance. INTRODUCTION
An investigation of the sensory ecology of a species or of a discrete taxonomic
group can be approached from quite different perspectives. Dusenbery (1992)
favors an approach ...
