    Honey Bees Modulate Their Olfactory Learning in the Presence of Hornet Predators and Alarm Component In Southeast Asia the native honey bee species Apis cerana is often attacked by hornets (Vespa velutina), mainly in the period from April to November. During the co-evolution of these two species...

    Dumb and Lazy? A Comparison of Color Learning and Memory Retrieval in Drones and Workers of the Buff-Tailed Bumblebee, Bombus terrestris, by Means of PER Conditioning More than 100 years ago, Karl von Frisch showed that honeybee workers learn and discriminate colors. Since then, many studies...

    Changes in Learning and Foraging Behaviour within Developing Bumble Bee (Bombus terrestris) Colonies Organisation in eusocial insect colonies emerges from the decisions and actions of its individual members. In turn, these decisions and actions are influenced by the individual's behaviour (or...

    Function and Distribution of 5-HT2 Receptors in the Honeybee (Apis mellifera) Serotonin plays a pivotal role in regulating and modulating physiological and behavioral processes in both vertebrates and invertebrates. In the honeybee (Apis mellifera), serotonin has been implicated in division of...

    Learning Impairment in Honey Bees Caused by Agricultural Spray Adjuvants Spray adjuvants are often applied to crops in conjunction with agricultural pesticides in order to boost the efficacy of the active ingredient(s). The adjuvants themselves are largely assumed to be biologically inert and...

    No Trade-Off between Learning Speed and Associative Flexibility in Bumblebees: A Reversal Learning Test with Multiple Colonies Differences in learning performance and cognitive (behavioral) flexibility could reflect more general differences in colony learning ability. Or to “dumb it down” – If...
