The timing of learning of colour and shape of the food source, as well as of near-by landmarks, was examined exploiting a behaviour described recently, the “Turn Back and Look” behaviour (TBL): Bees departing from a novel food source after feeding turn around to view it at a short distance (Figs. 2, 3) before departing for the hive. They repeat this behaviour on several successive visits, termed the “TBL phase” (Fig. 5). To examine the function of the TBL, I trained individual bees in 4… CONTINUE READING
