Study of social insects requires seeing the individual and the environment together. This integrative approach results in studying behavior starting from molecules to the nervous system to the motor system and to the ecosystem. This approach is not novel to social insect studies but it finds one of its best examples in social insects. I will present integrative study of detection, decision and action components during behavioral development in honey bees.
