About this book

Translated by Leigh E Chadwick
First published in 1967, this classic book is now available in paperback for the first time. From reviews of the original edition:
` ... will surely take its place in the tiny group of genuine classics of scientific literature. It is the definitive account of the waggle dance and other forms of honeybee communication as they have been so consummately elucidated by von Frisch and his students, and it contains in addition a clear summary of the vast lore of experiments on the sensory physiology and orientation of the honeybee.' Edward O. Wilson, Science
` This significant and lucid volume is the dichtes Buch of Karl von Frisch. Here in full flower are his classic experiments with honeybees which revolutionized our thinking about the communication behavior of animals.' Donald R Griffin, American Scientist
