A flexible model of foraging by a honey bee colony: the effects of individual behaviour on foraging success.

Abstract

This paper develops and explores a model of foraging in honey bee colonies. The model may be applied to forage sources with various properties, and to colonies with different foraging-related parameters. In particular, we examine the effect of five foraging-related parameters on the foraging response and consequent nectar intake of a homogeneous colony. The… (More)
