Patriline-level variability in olfactory learning in the honey bee

Abstract

Genetically determined differences among honeybee workers are known to contribute to task specialisation. To investigate the genetic component of olfactory learning we used proboscis extension conditioning to record individual performance, and a patriline-level analysis to separate the variance in learning performance into its different components. We found… (More)
