It's about sitting outdoors off your own lawn chairs, eating your own chicken wings, and chopping your own watermel- ons in half--just not on someone else's stomach• Bees buzzing on caffeine By Dr. E. Kirsten Peters A friend of mine recently re- turned to the U.S. from deploy- ment with the National Guard in Af- ghanistan. One of the first things he did when he reached a military base in Texas was to buy a cup of espresso. He even took a picture of it and posted it on the internet. Good coffee was a sure sign, he said, he'd returned to civi- lization. The magic in coffee is caffeine, a stimulant that keeps us coffee- drinkers going back for more every day. Many of us know that a dose of caffeine makes us perk up and concentrate better. It makes read- ing and writing a breeze for me, it helps students the world around study more effectively, and it gen- erally greases the wheels of our workaholic world. "I don't think I can afford to stop drinking coffee, if it means I would have an even worse memory," said Prof. Walter Sheppard. Sheppard is the chair of the Entomology Department at Washington State University. I was talking to him because of a recent study that shows people aren't the only animals with a taste tbr caf- feine. Recently scientists presented evidence that honey bees --just like soldiers and aging geologists - - get a buzz from caffeine and their memory is enhanced by it. Geraldine Wright is a scientist at England's Newcastle Univer- sity. She led the research on bees reported in Science that I discussed with Sheppard. It' s perhaps no surprise that the nectar in the flowers of coffee plants have a bit of caffeine in them. But would you guess that some citrus flowers also are laced with a little caffeine? It's reasonable to think that flowering plants might have e certain chem,cals m them specifi- " cally because of fhe way they af- fect bees. That's tecause certain flowering plants"ct-evolved"over time with tile help of bees a11d shaped tile insects even as the bees influenced the plants. To put it bluntly, bees are hcq,- ful when 1 :'ts want to have sex with one amther. The at-- tracted to a flower by the nectar, ,b.ut it gets covered in pollen while "it feeds. When it moves on l,, t ew flower, the pollen is spread from the bee's bd'" hairs to the second flower, a fac hat helps the plant repr,duce. "It's not b,:d to test learning in a bee. You basically put a bee in a straw to hold it still. Then you blow ascent like lavender on them. When they extend their proboscis (or tongue) you can give them a sugar water reward," Sheppard said. Over time, the bees will learn to extend their little tongues when they smell lavender• Now here' s the part that's inter- esting. If the sugar water was laced with a tincture of caffeine, the bees were more likely when re-tested to stick out their tongues. That's to say, they remembered their lesson better if a bit of caffeine was in their drink. And this effect grew stronger over the passage of time for up to three days - which counts as a long time if you're a bee.
