An amazing symbolic communication system exists among honey bees. In studies of bees begun in the
early 1900s, the Austrian scientist Karl von Frisch determined many of the details of their means of
communication. In a classic paper published in 1923, von Frisch described how after a field bee discovers a
new source of food, such as a field in bloom, she fills her honey sac with nectar (the sweet liquid that bees
collect from flowers), returns to the nest or hive, and performs a vigorous but highly standardized dance. If
the new source of food is within about 90 m (about 259 ft) of the nest or hive, the bee performs a circular
dance, first moving about 2 cm (about .75 in) or more, and then circling in the opposite direction. Many of
the bees in the nest or hive closely follow the dancer, copying her movements. During all this, the other
workers try to determine the smell of the flowers from which the dancer collected the nectar. Having
learned that food is not far from the nest or hive, and what it smells like, the other bees leave the nest or hive
and fly in widening circles until they find the source.

Amounts of sleep vary greatly with age and even between individuals. Newborns sleep the most – a
newborn baby sleeps between 17 and 18 hours a day, spending nearly half of that time in REM sleep
(periods of eye movement during sleep). Both REM and NREM (nonrapid eye movement) sleep decrease
with age, and by age five, children sleep between 10 and 12 hours a day, spending about 20 percent of that
time in REM sleep.
The average young adult seems to need about 8 hours of sleep per night to function well enough during
waking hours. Some people, however, sleep just 6 or 7 hours a night, while others need more than 9 hours
to feel rested. Old people spend less time in deep NREM sleep, and their sleep is more easily interrupted.
REM sleep amounts also vary across different animals, depending on the size of the animal and its level
of development at birth. The size of an animal seems to affect the type of sleep it experiences – small animals
generally spend more time in REM sleep. Animals, such as opossums and humans, that are born in a
condition in which they are unable to look after themselves or to do anything to help themselves, generally
have more REM sleep as newborns than animals that can hunt, eat, keep warm, and defend themselves
soon after birth, for instance horses. Even as animals age into adulthood, those born relatively immature
continue to spend more time in REM sleep than animals that are mature at birth.
