Prior studies of the colony-level patterns of the production of ihc shaking signal supgest strongly that this signal semes to arouse workers to greater activity, such as at times of good foraging. Data from our obsenrauons of mdividual bees holster the hypothesis that the shaking signal informs workers to prepare for a higher level of activity. We followed foragers in a colony whose only source ilf ‘nectar’ was a sugar-water feeder and discovered that when the feeder was left empty for 1-3 d and then refilled, the first bees to find the fond initially produced only shaking signals upon return to the hivc. It was not until they had completed several trips to the feeder that they began to produce waggle dances. Evidently, the shaking signal and the waggle dance function together to stimulate a colony’s foragers to activity.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Weidenmüller, Anja</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Kühnholz, Susanne</dc:creator> <dcterms:bibliographicCitation>First publ. in: Ethology ; 104 (1998), 1. - pp. 10-26</dcterms:bibliographicCitation> <dc:contributor>Kühnholz, Susanne</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2012-01-30T14:47:28Z</dcterms:available> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
