Self-Organization in Biological Systems. The waggle dance provides positive feedback, promoting foraging at a specific location or increased scouting at a potential nest site. Additionally, using the stop signal may enable bees to rapidly adjust foraging efforts in response to shifts in their environment’s nectar flow.

Feedback loops in a foraging colony, showing the effect of the stop signal on waggle dances and forager recruitment. The stop signal is also used when foragers experience some form of danger or competition at a food source Nieh, The dancers stopped dancing soon after receiving stop signals, and their dances were shorter than those of dancers not receiving stop signals When swarms simultaneously scouted two identical nesting boxes, dancers for either box received more stop signals from bees that had visited and been marked at the other site contra-signalers than bees that had visited the same site ipsi-signalers.

Nieh acknowledged this and suggested that competition at the feeding station ipxi be signallinb similar to the competition experienced when bees rob food from other colonies though Johnson and Hubbell,and others, have reported competitive interactions at floral sources. Here, we will focus on a few of the vibratory ones including the well-known waggle dance, which signals the distance and direction of a resource such as a food source or a potential nest site to nestmates von Frisch, Aside from this model, however, an actual ipxi of the signaling that occurs during an actual robbing or dense-flower situation and comparing it to the signaling used while foraging at a feeding station is an area of research that has not yet been explored.

A useful line of research would be to determine what factors, if any, within the hive might help drive bees’ decisions to tremble dance or stop signal. Rather less well known than the waggle dance is the stop signal, a short vibration often delivered while butting against a dancing bee.


While there are unanswered questions about the use of the stop signal, most of what has been discovered fits a picture of the stop signal as a negative-feedback component in recruitment, a sort of anti-waggle dance. The tremble dance of the honey bee: Similarly, Michelsen et al. The intraspecific competition that the bees experienced at the feeding station was probably somewhat artificial.

It is quite likely that not all of these have yet been described. A negative feedback signal that is triggered by peril curbs honey bee recruitment. The sounds made by these bees were later identified as vibrations of the comb made by pressing the thorax briefly to it and pulsing the wings Michelsen et al. Stop signals provide cross inhibition in collective decision-making by honey bee swarms.

Introduction Honey bees Apis mellifera L. Numerous activities within honey bee Apis mellifera L. Lau and Nieh hypothesized that a food source that is declining in quality, for example running out of food or becoming overcrowded, may provoke the use of the stop signal by foragers.

Stop signaling increased when a feeding station was available Thom et al. Negative feedback enables fast and flexible collective decision-making in ants. During a swarm’s nest site selection process, scout bees that visited a different site than the one being advertised are more likely to stop-signal the waggle dancer than are scouts that ipssi visited the same site.

Decision-making by groups of animals has received increasing recent attention in part because of recognition of its significance to other systems, in particular complex nervous systems and human iipsi systems.

Tremble dancers that used the stop signal ended up staying in the hive for longer than those that did not use the stop signal Thom et al. This deadlock avoidance is of key importance to the nest site selection process because unlike during foraging, a decision for a single site must be reached.

These are puzzling results that ispi the immediate questions of what might have been motivating the bees to signal and what the signals’ effects were on the decision-making process.

Foragers that performed the stop signal tended to spend less of their time within the colony on the dance floor, and often continued performing the stop signal outside of the dance floor Thom et al. It can be inferred that by inhibiting the waggle dance, the stop signal strengthens the nectar-receiver-recruiting effect of the tremble dance Figure 1but this does not account for the bees observed using the stop signal outside of the dance floor.

Tremble dancers that performed the stop signal tremble-danced for longer than non-stop signalers and traveled signaling into the hive Thom et al.

Most of the stop signaling activity was by tremble dancers, although non-waggle dancing nectar foragers also performed the stop signal Thom et al. The results of Schlegel et al. Negative feedback in ants: There would likely also be in an increase in stop signaling as the colony’s nectar-handling capacity would be exceeded and foraging would need to be shut down.

These can encode complex information as a result of having varying chemical blends, concentrations, and operating synergistically with other factors Czaczkes et al.

Acoustical communication in honey bees. Over time, multiple sites maybe be advertised by many different dancers, with each group competing to recruit additional scouts to their site. Under natural conditions this would likely be a response to being attacked by other bees or a predator while foraging.

However, they scanned the natural conditions colony for communication signals but did not closely examine the behaviors exhibited by the individual signalers, thus, an effective comparison cannot be made using their results. After a decision was reached about which nest box to occupy inferred from the initiation of worker piping, which prepares the swarm for takeoffthe stop signalers no longer selectively targeted dancers advertising the opposing site and dancers received contra- and ipsi- signals equally.
