The visual discrimination of horizontal gratings by the honeybee (Apis mellifera) was studied in a Y-choice apparatus with fixed patterns presented vertically at a set range. Translocation in this context is the exchange of the positions of two different colored or black areas. This paper investigates what cues the bees have learned in this task. The patterns, made from combinations of calibrated colored papers, are designed to explore the parts played by the blue and green receptors when the… CONTINUE READING
