This experimental data was collected from colonies of the bumblebee Bombus impatiens. We video recorded bees at artificial feeders, and then later extracted behavioral data and recorded it manually in notebooks. Our behavioral measures here are latency to feed from the constant feeder and latency to discover the novel feeder. We then transferred data from the notebooks into an Excel spreadsheet. Please see the full manuscript for more information.
Simulation data was collected by running replicates of an agent-based model, designed to simulate a colony of foraging bumblebees. This model was written in Python. Data from resulting files were extracted and analyzed using Python. Please see the manuscript for more information about the model. The data presented here are the raw data files; code to process the files (as well as the model code itself) can be found here: https://github.com/dcincorvaia/Spatial-Allocation.
The "Notes" column includes details on individual datapoints that anyone wishing to use this data may want to take into consideration. There is an "Exclude" column as well, with the reason for the exclusion usually mentioned in the notes. There is one data point excluded in the "Spatial Allocation Latency" data that is exluded with no note; this was excluded because the bee in question hadn't experienced the treatment; the treatment was injected into the nest, and this bee didn't return to the nest before this measurement was taken.
