In in, he describes his practices as well as how to use the lenses he used whilst studying these insects. These studies helped him identify the gender of males bees (drones) and explains why these drones are so important to the bee colony. The experiments and research he conducted laid the ground work and set a precedent for future beekeeping and bee study. Main author: Joseph Warder Title: The true Amazons: or, The monarchy of bees.
