Résumé
Honey bee colonies use a number of signals and information cues to coordinate collective foraging. The best known signal is the waggle dance by which dancers provide nest-mates with information about the location of a foraging or nest site. The efficiency of this nest-based recruitment strategy partly depends on olfactory information about food sources that is transferred from dancer to receivers in parallel to spatial information. Here we will address how the waggle dance facilitates the acquisition and the retrieval of food odor information and how olfactory memory affects the interaction patterns among nest-mates within the dancing and the food-unloading context. We further discuss how olfactory information affects the food preferences of foragers acquired directly from scented-food offered inside the hive. The discussed results show that odor learning in this context is an important component of the honey bee recruitment system that has long-term consequences for foraging decisions.
