When a bee finds pollen, it often comes back to the hive and dances for the other bees. All the rest watch and they can tell, from the dance, the direction and distance (I think) of the pollen.
How did the bees evolve to get this trait? Even if one of them got a gene that made it understand direction and distance relative to the sun (and somehow it was able to keep up with the fact that the sun moves during the year), then did all the other bees evolve to understand it too? how did this work? Thanks for your answers!
I’d like to add that I have no agenda here. Look at my other question I asked about sheep. I am simply interested in how these things work. In response specifically to jonmcn49, I assume that evolution experts understand how this happened to bees and I would like you to get into the details of it. That is why I posted this question.
Sorry for the misunderstanding, but I am just interested in how evolution works and I could find nothing about this elsewhere.
