Polarized light orientation in honey bees: is time a component in sampling?


, : Polarized light orientation in honey bees: is time a component in sampling?. Biological Cybernetics, 562-3: 89-96

The experiments were conducted with a colony of honeybees housed in a two-frame domed observation hive. When they returned from foraging at an artificial food source 670 m distant, the bees danced inside the hive on a flat horizontal platform.
