On 8 June 2018 RMIT University reported: Scientists have discovered honeybees can understand the concept of zero, putting them in an elite club of clever animals that can grasp the abstract mathematical notion of nothing. In research published in the journal Science, Australian and French researchers tested whether honey bees can rank numerical quantities and understand that zero belongs at the lower end of a sequence of numbers. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

RMIT University's Associate Professor Adrian Dyer said the number zero was the backbone of modern maths and technological advancements.

'Zero is a difficult concept to understand and a mathematical skill that doesn't come easily -- it takes children a few years to learn,' Dyer said.

'We've long believed only humans had the intelligence to get the concept, but recent research has shown monkeys and birds have the brains for it as well.

'What we haven't known -- until now -- is whether insects can also understand zero.'
