Jean-Christophe Sandoz’s team (Evolbee) work was published in Current Biology. A new social learning was demonstrated in honey bees. A mere social contact without food exchange allows worker bees to describe other worker bees the source of food. This article was distinguished for a dispatch in Current Biology and a breve de l’INEE.
