One reason for insects being so successful - about 70% of all animal species - is their excellent ability to detect moisture. Take termites for instance. The soldiers boot out the flying reproductives only when it will rain within 24 hours. Because moisture will be needed to survive and make a new termite nest.
Humans by contrast are hopeless at detecting moisture; humans do not have the senses to be able to predict rain. Except by more indirect methods and science.
So my question is is there any way of ranking the different abilities to detect moisture? This is not a list question. Rather, it's steering for a formula or set of variables. Are there factors that make a dog better at detecting moisture than cat for instance, if that is the case?
I am surprised that nobody seems to have done this for something - water and moisture - that is so vital for life.
