Honey Bee Biology


Honey Bees are not only delightful, industrious and beautiful, they are essential to life as we know it.

The disappearance of honey bees would disrupt the delicate balance of nature, leading to cascading effects on wildlife, biodiversity, and human livelihoods. Ecosystems would suffer as these vital pollinators play a crucial role in crop reproduction, and agricultural diversity would plummet, affecting food production and global economies.

This comprehensive reference book on Honey Bee biology brings established topics up to date and explores emerging areas of enquiry.

Covering everything from molecular genetics, development, physiology, neurobiology, behaviour, their role as pollinators, threats from pesticides, parasites and pathogens, this is an essential resource for scientists, beekeepers and systems modellers.
