Abstract: Some organisms disperse energy, associated with the transportation of resource, which is not necessarily food. Stingless bees of Central Amazonia (Melipona flavolineata and M. lateralis) collect clay in banks along streams for nest building. The moisture of the clay varies along the bank, and bees collect clay from specific location, indicating that there is some sort of preference regarding their selection. This study aims at identifying: if larger bees carry more clay; if there is a preference for moisture o… Show more

“…The occurrence of this activity only during the afternoon can be explained by the low moisture of the material in the hottest time, allowing that detritus to be more easily transported. Costa-Pereira (2014) found that two species of Melipona collect clay with less moisture to reduce the energy cost during transport.…”
