Abstract

A foraging moth or bee visits up to a few dozen to more than a hundred flowers on a foraging trip,1 and it can make many such trips in a single day.2 During these visits it associates floral stimuli-color,3-6 shape,7,8 texture,9,10 odor11,12-with nectar and pollen rewards produced by flowers to attract pollinators.13 Based on these experiences, the honeybee’s memory is continuously updated with current information about the nature and distribution of reward associated with a species of flower.14 This memory influences ongoing decisions about staying or leaving a resource patch15 and whether to specialize on a particular species of flower.1,16.
