... with distance than the sparse vegetation condition in A. florea but not in A. cerana . Our findings suggest that contrast sensitivity of the waggle dance odometer might vary among honey bee species. Studies on how the waggle phase duration varies in natural habitats, with apparent differences in optic flow...

However, recruiter T th was not correlated with finer-scale measures of motivation: the number of waggle dance circuits or waggle dance return phase duration...

...Rodrigo J. De Marco; Juan M. Gurevitz; Randolf Menzel SUMMARY A honeybee's waggle dance is an intriguing example of multisensory convergence, central processing and symbolic information transfer. It conveys to bees and human observers the position of a relatively small area at the endpoint...

...Rodrigo De Marco; Randolf Menzel SUMMARY Apis mellifera bees execute waggle dances to recruit other bees to desirable food sources. Several components of the waggle dance are correlated with the direction of and the distance to food. Moreover, recruits use the spatial information encoded...

.... Here, we use chequered tunnels with various colour combinations as a tool to identify the spectral channel used by bees to gauge travel distance. The probability of bees performing waggle dances after a short travel distance correlates only with the low range of the green contrast of the pattern...

..., will perform a tremble dance to recruit additional nectar receiver bees. A forager that experiences a short unloading delay will perform a waggle dance to recruit more nectar foragers. A long unloading delay was until now the only known cause of tremble dancing. However, several studies suggested that factors...

... to a food source ( Seeley, 1986 ). The habit of begging bees of pressing their thoraces against the surface of the comb may provide us with another clue to the waggle dance. High-speed videos of dancing bees show that, during the dance, bees alter their gait and take only a single ‘step’ (i.e. each leg...

...Juergen Tautz ABSTRACT The waggle dance of the honeybee Apis mellifera , used to recruit nestmates to a food source, takes place on the surface of the combs in the dark hive. The mechanism of information transfer between dancer and follower bees is not entirely understood. The results presented...
