Assistant Professor Stacey Combes and colleagues put tiny QR codes on the backs of bumblebees to reveal their social lives. The system--called BEEtag--allows researcher to track the movements of hundreds of bees in a hive through the day and night. Combes' research with former Harvard graduate student James Crall, published in Nature Communications, is the subject of a new Wired article, "Why These Bumblebees Are Wearing Itty-Bitty QR Codes."
