Time-place learning, or spatio-temporal learning, occurs when an animal associates the time and place of an event, usually when foraging. This form of learning has been studied in a variety of organisms but seems only to occur in those species in which it is ecologically beneficial. For example, insectivorous birds have evolved more consistent time-place learning than granivorous birds because their prey may only be available during specific times (Falk et al, 1992). In contrast, when a species… Expand
Temporal Memory in Foraging of the Stingless Bee Melipona subnitida (Hymenoptera: Apidae: Meliponini)
TLDR
The visitation of the bees was high before and during the opening interval of the food resource, but rare after the closing, suggesting that M. subnitida has the ability to memorize the time of availability of the resource, increasing the accuracy over the days. Expand
Time–place learning in the bee Melipona fasciculata (Apidae, Meliponini)
TLDR
Results showed that food-anticipatory activity occurs in this bee species, and foragers made periodic inspection visits before and after the feeder was available, and differences are discussed and compared with different recruitment strategies and resource exploitation strategies in bees. Expand
Heliconiini butterflies can learn time-dependent reward associations
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Heliconius hecale can learn opposing colour preferences in two time periods, demonstrating time learning likely pre-dates the origin of pollen feeding and may be prevalent across butterflies with less specialized foraging behaviours. Expand

Adjustment of fuel loads in stingless bees (Melipona subnitida)
TLDR
The fuel adjustment in the Brazilian stingless bee Melipona subnitida is investigated and it is demonstrated that the capability of fuel adjustment is not restricted to honey bees. Expand
High experience levels delay recruitment but promote simultaneous time-memories in honey bee foragers
TLDR
The ability to maintain and act upon two different, yet contemporaneous, time-memories gives the forager bee a previously unknown level of versatility in attending to multiple food sources. Expand
Contrasting styles in cognition and behaviour in bumblebees and honeybees
TLDR
This work examines whether differences between bumblebees and honeybees in cognitive processes are related to differences in their natural history and behaviour, and highlights a number of phenomena, including concept learning, spatial cognition, timing, and metacognition, for which targeted comparative research may reveal unexpected adaptive variation in Cognitive processes in these complex animals.

Bumblebees and honeybees have been the subjects of a great deal of recent research in animal cognition. Many of the major topics in cognition, including memory, attention, concept learning,Expand
On the Diversity of Foraging-Related Traits in Stingless Bees
TLDR
Differences in foraging strategy among the stingless bees with regard to aggression, recruitment ability, and recruitment precision influence dominance relationships at a feeding site and, thus, are important factors concerning the partitioning of resources. Expand
Time-place learning and leader-follower relationships in Arctic charr Salvelinus alpinus.
TLDR
One group showed significant anticipatory visit activity into both feeding sites during the hours before the feed was available, suggesting a time and place learning of resource availability. Expand

Time-place learning and the ecology of recruitment in a stingless bee, Trigona amalthea (Hymenoptera, Apidae)
TLDR
In T. amalthea a combination of time-place learning and recruitment allow for rapid mobilization of workers when food is available, and due to territoriality in this species, foraging ranges are truncated so that the ex- pected reductions of foraging effort at the margins of the foraging territory are not observed. Expand
Spatio-temporal learning by the ant ectatomma ruidum
TLDR
Ants stayed at the expected unrewarded site for a period equivalent to the reward period of the corresponding training phase, indicating that they had learnt when and for how long the food was available, suggesting that they rely on their spatio-temporal memory rather than on local cues coming from the honey source. Expand
Learning a time-place pattern of food availability: a comparison between an insectivorous and a granivorous weaver species (Ploceus bicolor and Euplectes hordeaceus)
TLDR
Differences in the performance between the two species in phase shift (6 h advance) and blocking (4 h food deprivation) experiments might reflect a difference between the species in the strength of the linkage between time and place. Expand
Temporal learning in the giant tropical ant, Paraponera clavata
TLDR
The findings suggest that the capacity for temporal learning in ants may be associated with nectivory, and that the precision of ant time sense is similar to that previously documented for honeybees. Expand
The role of internal and external information in foraging decisions of Melipona workers (Hymenoptera: Meliponinae)
TLDR
The results show that Melipona foragers make decisions based upon their own experience and that communication stimulates these foragers if it concerns the previously visited source, and that an information-integration model could be a starting point for future research on social insect foraging.

TLDR
The representational format of spatial and temporal memories in some insect species appears to be more subtle than is generally assumed when compared to other animal species. Expand

TLDR
Differences in colony size and foraging strategy did not relate to flower choice performance in the Trigona species and Constancy on odour was not generally overruled by constancy on colour or vice versa. Expand
