Inadvertent social information in foraging bumblebees effects of flower distribution and implications for pollination

, : Inadvertent social information in foraging bumblebees effects of flower distribution and implications for pollination. Animal Behaviour: 6, 1863-1873

Pollinators are confronted with spatial heterogeneity in floral resources. Acquiring information about their environment enables pollinators to exploit floral resources optimally, and hence strongly affects their fitness. Despite their evolutionary importance, spatial resource distribution and social information use have never been addressed in a plant-pollinator framework.
