Bees can perform basic mathematical operations, reports the Boston Globe.
The development of the conditions of experience, which confirmed the computational abilities of the bees, was engaged in the Australian and French experts. Despite the fact that the volume of the brain of these insects are minor, they can take away and add one to the specified value.
The results of the experiment allowed us to suggest that mathematical ability in the animal world prevalent to a greater extent than previously thought.
Note that in the beginning of this year a group of researchers from Budapest University found that black and white stripes of zebras is necessary both to hide from predators and to disorient insects.
