Effects of partial reinforcement on recruiting behaviour in honeybees foraging near the hive



Effects of partial reinforcement on recruiting behaviour in honeybees foraging near the hive



Journal of Apicultural Research 201: 19-22



The recruiting behaviour was investigated of honeybees whose inclination to forage received one of three levels of partial reinforcement, or continuous reinforcement, at feeding dishes. Honeybee foragers receiving an intermediate level of partial reinforcement recruited more new workers than foragers receiving either continuous reinforcement or less rewarding levels of partial reinforcement.
