... of macronutrient intake has been formalized in a modelling framework called the geometric framework (GF) for nutrition. The GF is designed to measure the strategies animals employ when regulating two types of essential nutrients simultaneously ( Simpson and Simpson, 1990 ; Raubenheimer and Simpson, 1993...

... in the diet affects nutrient balancing has rarely been studied. Recent research using the Geometric Framework for Nutrition has revealed that forager honeybees who receive much of their dietary EAAs from floral nectar and not from solid protein have relatively low requirements for dietary EAAs. Here, we...
