The relationship between bees and flowers is a remarkably close and interdependent one that has evolved over many millions of years. A good knowledge of this relationship not only helps beekeepers to ensure their honey bee colonies are healthy and productive, but also introduces the beekeeper to the fascinating world of plants, their form and function, and the ways in which bees and plants have adapted for mutual benefit. With a specific focus on the European honey bee (Apis mellifera) and the flowers and plants it utilizes in the British Isles, Plants and Honey Bees provides the perfect introduction for beekeepers to the fascinating world of bees, plants, and their relationships.
