Spatial and non-spatial coding of patterns by the honeybee (Apis mellifera)
Bees separate items in the three-dimensional world visually by relative motion, by colour, by range, and also by detecting global features in two-dimensional patterns. They resolve a grating of period 3°-4° in daylight but when the locations of contrasts are made useless as cues by randomizing or alternating the positions of black areas, they cannot discriminate between many simple geometrical patterns. Although bees confuse some patterns that look very different to us, they can be...[Show more]
