You are a graduate student in the lab of the famous Professor Shimoda. The focus of the lab you work in is the study of a newly discovered bee species in the family Halictidae. One of your coworkers discovered a form of cooperative behavior in this species in which the bees appear to share information about the location of recently visited flowers. Your coworker has carefully documented this behavior. In order to bring you up to speed, you take a field trip to the lab study site so that you can observe the behavior first hand.
