...Jianjun Li; Zhengwei Wang; Ken Tan; Yufeng Qu; James C. Nieh Social pollinators such as honey bees face attacks from predators not only at the nest, but also during foraging. Pollinating honey bees can therefore release alarm pheromones that deter conspecifics from visiting dangerous inflorescences...

...Claudia C. Lutz; Gene E. Robinson SUMMARY The natural history of adult worker honey bees ( Apis mellifera ) provides an opportunity to study the molecular basis of learning in an ecological context. Foragers must learn to navigate between the hive and floral locations that may be up to miles away...
