Example of a Summary: Pollination Lab Hypothesis: Bees are more likely to pollinate flower beds in the sun compared to flower beds found in the shade. The rationale for this hypothesis is that bees are diurnal animals with a limited night vision. They may be better able to perceive flowers in a sunlit environment, and thus, may be attracted to (and will be more likely to visit) sunlit flower beds. Methods: We observed 10 flower beds total, five in the sun near the southeast corner of the Auburn Science and Engineering Center (University of Akron, Akron, Ohio) and five permanently in the shade (against the south side of the Auburn Science and Engineering Center). We chose flower beds containing the same type of flower ( Petunia hybrida ) and same size (3 meters x 2 meters). We observed each flower bed for 30 minutes three times a day (mid- morning, noon, and late afternoon) for a total of 1 hour ½ per bed. We recorded the total number of honeybees ( Apis mellifera ) that visited each flower bed over 1 hour ½. Our sample size is 5 (n=5).
