About this book

The honey bee is critically important for ecosystem function and biodiversity maintenance through its pollinating activity. In Silico Bees provides a collection of computational methods to those primarily interested in the study of the ecology, ethology, and ecotoxicology of bees. Avoiding mathematical jargon, it presents numerous case studies to enable readers to understand the appropriateness but also the limitations of models in theoretical and applied bee research.

Written by an international team of experts, In Silico Bees covers the main types of modeling approaches that can be used in terrestrial ecology and applied ecotoxicology.
