    Department Entomology, Ohio State University, Columbus, OH 43210, USA
    J Comp Physiol A Neuroethol Sens Neural Behav Physiol 191:105-14. 2005

    Ohio State University, Mathematical Biosciences Institute, 231 W 18th Avenue, Columbus, OH 43210, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 272:2417-22. 2005
    ..We argue that this could be a natural consequence of odour coding and suggest how an 'intensity feature' might be useful to the honeybee in natural odour detection and discrimination...
