About this book

This book is designed to present detailed information about the anatomy and physiology of the honey bee in a clear and concise format. Each of the eight chapters covers an aspect of bee biology and all are copiously illustrated. The author has drawn most of the diagrams from her own dissections, giving a realistic rather than idealistic impression of the parts involved.

An appendix describes how to undertake your own dissections and the equipment required. Also included are a second appendix giving the background to scientific terminology, a wide-ranging glossary including phonetic spellings and suggestions for further reading. This is a book that will inform anybody who is interested in this fascinating insect. It is based on the examination modules set by the British Beekeepers' Association, but this text will prove interesting for anyone wanting to know more about our honey bees.

This third edition has been completely revised and updated.

Media reviews

The production of the second edition is indeed a triumph; the success of this book ranks Celia Davis among the 'greats' of beekeeping authors
- Michael Badger, MBE, past-President, British Beekeeper's Association

"This is an excellent book covering topics many beekeepers find difficult to understand. For those studying modules 5, 6 or 7 of the BBKA examination framework this book is really a must, readily available on the bookshelf at home, to help make study a pleasure."
- John Hendrie, former secretary, British Beekeeper's Association Examination Board
