Lorenz curve – Tenczar 2014

Example plot of a typical Lorenz curve of cumulative share of foraging activity for one of five study colonies

Individual bees were ranked by their contribution to total colony activity in ascending order, and the fraction of each bee’s contribution to the total activity of the colony was cumulatively plotted to produce the curve. The dotted line represents the plot that would result if the contributions of all individuals were perfectly equal. Modified from Tenczar et al., 2014.
