Probing navigation strategies of honeybees – landmark experiments and simulations

Abstract : In this study we probed the content of the spatial memory of honeybees in two landmark manipulation experiments accompanied by computer modelling. While the results of the first experiments are in line with an image-like representation of places, the findings of the second experiment suggest that bees also memorize the depth structure of a scene, most probably inferred from optic flow. This is supported by the fact that bees actively control their visual input.
