The second lecture in the Fall 2010 Faculty Lecture Series features Mānoa’s Patricia Couvillon and Tales From the Hive and Other Stories of Animal Intelligence, Thurs., Oct. 14, 3:30 p.m. in Hamilton Hamilton Library, Room 301.

The field of comparative psychology was launched in the wake of Charles Darwin’s assertions of mental continuity between animals and humans. Recent work with honeybees, a species only remotely related to humans, has added intriguing complexity to the field. This talk will illustrate some of the ingenious methods developed for research on the learning and memory of honeybees, highlight the most remarkable findings and also touch on contemporary threats to honeybees in Hawaiʻi and elsewhere.
