Paper on the bee dance published!

In our collaboration with James Nieh (UC San Diego) we investigated how bees that follow either the waggle or the tremble dance are attracted to the signalling bee. We tracked the movements of followers and dancers in video recordings and analyzed their trajectories. In the paper we show that both types of animals move in quite similar ways, but there are also some intriguing differences! Check out the paper (open access): Dancing attraction: followers of honey bee tremble and waggle dances exhibit similar behaviors
