Animal navigation is a fascinating research field where scientists have been attempting to answer some key and basic questions explaining the mechanisms behind it. Interestingly, most of the scientific explanations for the orientation and navigation of numerous animals derive from ideas in physics. Accordingly, the main purpose of this Special Issue is to provide a general overview of this field and show, mostly to the physics community, the enormous interest of this interdisciplinary field and all its possible connections to diverse physics disciplines. It would be delightful if this could stimulate future research collaborations among physicists in this interdisciplinary research area.
