About this book

Paperback reprint of a book originally published in 1992. Intended not so much as a reference book on honeybee biology, but as a new conceptual framework of an "old" biological understanding of the honeybee colony on the basis of modern biological analysis and recent theories. The honeybee is presented as it lives and thrives in its social unit – the colonial superorganism.
