About this book

This book presents detailed information about the anatomy and physiology of the honey bee in a clear and concise format. Each of the eight chapters covers an aspect of bee biology, and all are copiously illustrated. The author has drawn most of the diagrams from her own dissections, giving a realistic impression of the parts involved.

This second edition sees additional material, including a short section on practical dissection.

The production of the second edition is indeed a triumph; the success of this book ranks Celia Davis among the 'greats' of beekeeping authors
- Michael Badger, MBE, past-President, British Beekeeper's Association

"This is an excellent book covering topics many beekeepers find difficult to understand. For those studying modules 5, 6 or 7 of the BBKA examination framework this book is really a must, readily available on the bookshelf at home, to help make study a pleasure."
- John Hendrie, former secretary, British Beekeeper's Association Examination Board
