dc.description.abstractConventional wisdom accords to the honey bee Nasanov gland pher- <br /><br />omone a forager attractant function. Our experiments failed to support three <br /><br />predictions of that hypothesis. 1) Fragrant components of Nasanov gland secretion <br /><br />were not more effective than other scents as recruitment incentives for new (naive) <br /><br />foragers to a food source. 2) Honey bees harvesting scented rewards did not choose <br /><br />"Nasanov mixture" scent in preference to other odors. 3) After training to "mixed <br /><br />scent," containing Nasanov and nonNasanov components, bees did not prefer <br /><br />Nasanov pheromonal components. Our experiments did not support the conclu- <br /><br />sion that Nasanov gland secretions function as a "forager attractant" pheromone.
