Spatial Vision in the Honeybee: The Use of Different Cues in Different Tasks

M Lehrer. Vision Res.

Abstract

Much of the knowledge available on sensory performances in insects has been obtained from training experiments in honeybees. The present article reviews results of several behavioural studies on spatial vision in the bee. When considered jointly, they demonstrate the large amount of flexibility in the bee's visually guided behaviour. The visual cue that is used in a task depends on the experimental situation, e.g. the bee learns that particular cue that would most reliably guide it to its goal.
