9781441929228: The Little Book of bees (Little Book Series)

The more we learn about bees, the more extraordinary they seem. They have five eyes and beat their wings at almost 200 cycles per second. And to communicate with each other bees do make sounds but also dance. This book, packed with over 30 figures, gives a fascinating insight into the extraordinary complex and highly organised world of bees. The author, K. Weiss, explains the critical role that bees and bee-keeping play for human society, and offers advice for those interested in raising bees.

From the Inside Flap:

People generally think of bees as insects that fly out of hives and make us honey. Actually, there are many hundreds of bee species, most of which live rather hidden from our view. The Little Book of Bees gives an insight into the life of both honeybees and wild bees to anyone who is interested in their social behavior.

For every reader who's ever pondered a hive, or a buzzing bee at a picnic, this beautifully illustrated window into the mysterious world of bees is the perfect introduction.

About the Author:

Karl Weiss is an entomologist and the director of the Bavarian Beekeeping institute at Erlangen, Germany.
