MAKING SCENTS OF THE BEE WAGGLE DANCE

September 2007

Bees do a waggle dance in the dark of the hive to show their sisters where food can be found. It turns out they are also releasing chemical signals while they do this. Magazine article from PLoS Biology (open access); research article (open access); my summary of this study, from J Exp Biol (open access).
