MetadataShow full item record
Although it has received less coverage than in vertebrates, the study of insect social learning has a rich history with spectacular examples of how individuals extract knowledge from other animals. Several new studies on crickets and social bees have now shown how insects can adjust their behaviour adaptively by making use of cues generated inadvertently by other individuals.
