Apidologie - Bees in a flight tunnel. This procedure was used to show that the evaluation of distance by bees proceeds from their visual system. And through the white and black stripes, its has been shown that it also depends on the landscape's structure. This experiment was carried out by then calculating the length of the bees's dance in relation to the food source of which the distance was identified. /Apidologie - Bees in a flight tunnel.

Apidologie - A bee in front of an odor gun. This technique allows for an association between an odor and a sugary reward. A sweet solution is applied to the antennas and the bee stretches out its proboscis, its little trunk. This odor-reflex association has brought to light the bees' capacity to remember odors and the time necessary to acquire olfactory memory. But also more complex learning: for example, an odor A is associated with a sugary solution and an odor B is not. Then, shortly after, it is reversed: the odor A is no longer associated with sugar but the odor B is. Result: the bee is capable of replacing the first signal by the new one.
