About this book

The stingless bees are the most diverse group of highly social bees and are key species in our planet's tropical and subtropical regions, where they thrive. In Mexico, the management of stingless bees dates back centuries, and they were an essential part of the culture and cosmogony of native peoples like the Maya. In recent decades a vast amount of information has been gathered on stingless bees worldwide. Stingless Bees of Mexico summarizes various aspects of the biology and management of stingless bees, with special emphasis on the Mexican species and the traditions behind their cultivation. Much of the information presented here was produced by the author and the team of researchers at the Universidad Autonoma de Yucatan in the course of three decades of working with these insects. Given the breadth of its coverage, Stingless Bees of Mexico offers an equally valuable reference guide for academics, students and beekeepers alike.

Media reviews

"This book is a real first. It is highly illustrated with color photographs, bringing readers step by step into external and internal bee anatomy and pollination ecology [...] Hope blossoms due to the efforts of Quezada-Euán and the biologists, beekeepers, conservationists, educators, anthropologists, and business-minded naturalists (such things matter deeply) who will find the book authoritative and use it to move forward."
– David Ward Roubik, The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 94, September 2019
