Pattern vision in honeybees (Apis mellifera): Flower-like patterns with no predominant orientation
Flying honeybees (Apis mellifera) discriminate colour, pattern disruption (equivalent to flicker induced by self-motion) and orientation of edges, but they are unable to distinguish between a + and a x pattern of four bars arranged at right angles. We find that they cannot distinguish between the four bars arranged in a square and the same rotated by 45°, but the square is discriminated from the cross. Bees also distinguish between a symmetrical radial pattern and one of concentric circles,...[Show more]
