Book Description Country Book Club. London. (1954) 1955 CBC edition. 8vo (130 x 209mm). Ppxiv,183. B/w illustrations, charts. Grey boards, spine titled in gilt. Ex library, numerous faults. Working copy in poor dust-wrapper. Karl von Frisch was the originator of the waggle-dance theory which he examined during many years of field and laboratory study of bees. This is a book club edition of the English translation of von Frisch's, Aus dem Leben der Bienen. "If we use excessively elaborate apporatus to examine simple natural phenomena Nature herself may escape us. This is what happened some forty-five years ago when a distinguished scientist, studying the colour sense of animals in his laboratory, arrived at the definite and apparently well-established conclusion that bees were colour-blind. It was this occasion which first caused me to embark on a close study of their way of life." A classic in its genre. Chapters include: The bee colony; The bee's home; How bees feed; The brood; The swarm; The 'Battle of the Drones'; Division of labour in the colony; Smell and taste; The bee's eye and how it works; Orientation, how the bee finds her way about; The language of bees; The bee's sense of time; The bee's mental capacity; Enemies and diseases of bees; Other insect communities, ants, wasps, bumble-bees; Solitary bees and how the colony began.
