Scarlett and Matt (along with collaborators at RMIT University, Curtin University and Monash University) have a new paper just accepted in Journal of Experimental Biology on flower-shape preferences in Australian native non-eusocial bees (the ones that nobody notices usually). It shows that they can detect differences in flower shape just as well as honeybees. This was a paper where the research was conducted, essentially in a ‘back-yard’ during lockdown in Melbourne. Nothing can stop Scarlett from doing her research!
