Abnormal Foraging Behavior Induced by Sublethal Dosage of Imidacloprid in the Honey Bee (Hymenoptera: Apidae)
Abstract Although sublethal dosages of insecticide to nontarget insects have never been an important issue, they are attracting more and more attention lately. It has been demonstrated that lowExpand

Impaired Olfactory Associative Behavior of Honeybee Workers Due to Contamination of Imidacloprid in the Larval Stage
The residue of imidacloprid in the nectar and pollens of the plants is toxic not only to adult honeybees but also the larvae. Our understanding of the risk of imidacloprid to larvae of the honeybeesExpand

Colour-associated foraging success and population genetic structure in a sit-and-wait predator Nephila maculata (Araneae: Tetragnathidae)
Giant wood spiders, Nephila maculata (Fabricius 1793), typically have a greenish cephalothorax and a dark abdomen decorated with striking yellow bands and spots. However, in Taiwan and neighbouringExpand

Patterns of chromatic information processing in the lobula of the honeybee, Apis mellifera L.
The honeybee, Apis mellifera L., is one of the living creatures that has its colour vision proven through behavioural tests. Previous studies of honeybee colour vision has emphasized the relationshipExpand

Colourful orb-weaving spiders, Nephila pilipes, through a bee's eyes
SUMMARY Many orb-weaving spiders in the tropics forage in open sites during the day and some of them have both bright and dark colourations. The conspicuous UV-reflective colour markings of theseExpand

Visualization of the spatial and spectral signals of orb-weaving spiders, Nephila pilipes, through the eyes of a honeybee
SUMMARY It is well known that the honeybee has good color vision. However, the spectral range in which the bee can see is different from that of the human eye. To study how bees view their world ofExpand

Function of being colorful in web spiders: attracting prey or camouflaging oneself?
Bright body colorations of orb-weaving spiders have been hypothesized to be attractive to insects and thus function to increase foraging success. However, the color signals of these spiders are alsoExpand

Insect form vision as one potential shaping force of spider web decoration design
SUMMARY Properties of prey sensory systems are important factors shaping the design of signals generated by organisms exploiting them. In this study we assessed how prey sensory preference affectedExpand
