Rüdiger Wehner’s research revolves around the neuroethological analysis of insect vision and visually guided behaviour. His multidisciplinary approach combines neuroanatomical, neurophysiological and behavioural analyses with computer simulations and robotic implementations. By focussing on one group of organisms, the desert ant Cataglyphis, he has rendered this insect a model organism in the study of animal navigation. At Zurich University Rüdiger Wehner has served for more than two decades as the Director of the Institute of Zoology, which he converted into a well recognized multifaceted institution of biological research and teaching spanning the range from molecular developmental genetics in Drosophila to vertebrate behaviour. As a Non-Resident Permanent Fellow of the Institute for Advanced Study (Wissenschaftskolleg) at Berlin Wehner has established the Fellow programmes in the life sciences now common at this institution.
