About this book

Bee interaction in the colony has previously been a neglected area of study with most of the research appearing only in scientific journals. This easily accessible and concise work discusses topics such as colony structure and organisation, physiological mechanisms of caste determination, the activities of worker bees, temperature regulation, and reproduction.
