Not only do honeybees perform the crucial task of pollination, but they can also solve simple math problems.
A group of researchers from Australia and France used a maze and color coded blocks to train honeybees how to do simple addition and subtraction problems. The color of a shape told the bee if it needed to add or subtract. If a bee solved a problem, it moved into a chamber that contained a treat.
Co-author of the study published in Science Advances, Adrian Dyer, says, "Our study provides an important building block for understanding how brains can evolve an ability to do maths."
