Despite darkness, nocturnal bees learn visual landmarks while foraging at night
Day-active bees, such as the fabled honeybee, are well known for using visual landmarks to locate a favoured patch of flowers and to find their way back to their hive. Researchers have now found that nocturnal bees can do the same thing, despite experiencing light intensities that are more than 100 million times dimmer than daylight. The new findings, reported by a team led by Eric Warrant of the University of Lund, Sweden, advance our understanding of the visual powers of nocturnal animals. (2004-08-09)

UCR entomologists report bee-dancing brings more food to honeybee colonies
P. Kirk Visscher, professor of entomology at UCR, reports in Nature that under natural foraging conditions the communication of distance and direction in the dance language can increase the food collection of honeybee colonies. The study also confirms that bees use this directional information in locating the food sources advertised in the dance. The study provides insights that may be of use in manipulating foraging behavior of honeybees for pollination of crops. (2002-12-13)
