New study shows when it comes to bee tongues, size matters
Authors Jessica Kettenbach and Elizabeth Hedrick monitoring plant density on Niwot Ridge Long Term Ecological Research Site, Colorado. (Nicole Miller-Struttmann/SUNY College at Old Westbury)
"We've seen declines in flowers on Pennsylvania Mountain at about 60 per cent. And with that, these bees have to now visit a whole bunch of different kinds of flowers because they need to visit any flower they can in order to get resources. Whereas in the past, they could specialize, and they could say 'ok, you're my favourite flower. I get everything I need from visiting you. You have the most nectar', and then they'll specialize on those flowers."
The bees used to prefer deep flowers, such as clover, which require a longer tongue to extract all the nectar. But as clover has declined due to warming temperatures, the bees now feed on a diversity of flowers, including shallow flowers, which could be a reason for the shortening of their tongues.
But the change in tongue size does have some benefits.
"Long tongues are expensive. If you think about the length of these tongues, in one species they're about 8 mm long, and a bee isn't that big, so that's a pretty large proportion of the body size. So that takes a lot of resources to grow a tongue that big. So if there isn't any major benefit to having that long tongue, then it'd behoove the colony to have bees with shorter tongues that can visit the greater diversity of things that are out there."
Miller-Struttmann says it is encouraging that the bees are changing to cope with the changes in their food supply, but says "what the future holds, remains to be seen."
