These experiments investigate the relation between the local features that are known to be discriminated by bees and the size of local regions in the spatial layout that is assumed to be the essence of pattern discrimination. Previous work with the Y-choice apparatus demonstrates that bees discriminate very well from a distance the angle of inclination of black-white edges of bars and striped patterns, but that the performance is progressively reduced by increasing the variety of contrasting...[Show more]
