    Default Waggle dance no longer useful in some cultivated landscapes

    Another interesting article

    "The team of biologists was surprised by their result that beehives without the dance information were more active and produced more honey than beehives that used dance language. "We were expecting to confirm that dance language was important, but our results were the exact opposite," said Dr. Robbie I'Anson Price, lead author of the study."

    I just read an article on this study from a much less reliable source that was nothing but tripe, so I came here to see if anyone has said anything. Now I am going to read the article you provided, see if i still question everything i just read.
