About this book

Language: German

Get the buzz on bees with up-close and personal, stunning photographs of more than a hundred species. If a bee flies near you or if it lands on your arm, you might want to run away as fast as you can. Or maybe you freeze and hope the bee moves on quickly. No matter your strategy, one thing is certain: you're probably not appreciating the bee's fascinating beauty. But you're missing out! Bees are stunning to observe up close. Aliens or robots might come to mind when you gaze into a blue face with two giant, shiny black eyes. (That's right, bees can be blue, green, and red, too). In Bienen, the photography of Sam Droege and the USGS presents more than 100 of the most eye-catching varieties of bees found throughout the world. While bee nerds may appreciate the common honey bee or the rare Andrena violae, others can simply enjoy the wide selection of different body shapes, head configurations, unique antennae, and the stories that accompany them.

Summary in German:
Weltweit existieren über 20.000 bekannte und unzählige noch unentdeckte Bienenarten; mehr als alle Säugetier-, Vogel- und Reptilienarten zusammen.

In diesem Buch werden 104 besondere Arten aus aller Welt in faszinierenden Nahaufnahmen und informativen Kurztexten vorgestellt. Natürlich wird auch die Europäische Honigbiene (Apis mellifera), portraitiert, doch gibt es auch auf unserem Kontinent zahlreiche Wildbienenarten wie die Hosenbiene, die Sägehornbiene oder die Seidenbiene. Die Mörtelbiene Nordafrikas baut Lehmnester an den Wänden von Gebäuden und in Peru gibt es eine stachellose Honigbiene, die ebenfalls staatenbildend ist. Fast unsichtbar sind die millimeterkleinen Steppenbienen Asiens, viel größer ist die Blattschneiderbiene Hawaiis. Daneben gibt es Bienenarten, die als „Blutbienen“ in Nester fremder Bienen einfallen und diese parasitieren. Die Kuckucksbiene wiederum lässt ihre Eier von anderen Bienen aufziehen.
