Pattern vision of the honeybee (Apis mellifera): the significance of the angle subtended by the target
The Y-choice apparatus, in which freely flying bees choose one of two targets from a fixed distance, was modified by adding a transparent baffle in each arm to control the angle subtended by the target at the point where the choice is made. Black and white patterns were partially covered to see whether the bees use the centre or the periphery of a target, and with what cues. A new technique, testing trained bees with one or more black spots on an otherwise blank target, probes the memory...[Show more]
