The Biology of the Honey Bee


Write The First Customer Review

This book not only reviews the basic aspects of social behavior, ecology, anatomy, physiology, and genetics, it also summarizes major controversies in contemporary honey bee research, such as the importance of kin recognition in the evolution of social behavior and the role of the well-known dance language in honey bee communication. Thorough, well-illustrated, and lucidly written, it will for many years be a valuable resource for scholars, students, and beekeepers alike.
