Description
Are some habitats better for bumble bees than others? Does it depend on the number or type of flowers that are available or some other factor? To answer these questions, Jeremy Hemberger, a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, designed a system for measuring the length of bumble bees’ foraging trips. He attached radio frequency identification tags to several bumblebees in a colony and then set up an array of detectors in their nest to record the bees comings and goings.
