Now back in print after more than two decades, this classic and still accurate account of the behavior patterns and sensory capacities of the honeybee remains a book "written with a simplicity, directness, and charm which all who know him will recognize as characteristic of its author. Any intelligent reader, without scientific training, can enjoy it."--Yale Review
The dance language and orientation of bees by Karl von Frisch( Book )

45 editions published between 1965 and 2013 in English and German and held by 1,671 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until his death in 1982, Karl von Frisch was the world's most renowned authority on bees. The Dance Language and Orientation of Bees is his masterwork--the culmination of more than fifty years of research. Now available for the first time in paperback, it describes in non-technical language what he discovered in a lifetime of study about honeybees--their methods of orientation, their sensory faculties, and their remarkable ability to communicate with one another. Thomas Seeley's new foreword traces the revolutionary effects of von Frisch's work, not just for the study of bees, but for all subsequent research in animal behavior. This new paperback edition also includes an "Appreciation" of von Frisch by the distinguished biologist Martin Lindauer, who was Frisch's protégé and later his colleague and friend

Eine Darstellung des eigenen Lebensweges stand nicht auf meinem Arbeitsprogramm. Der Anstoß kam von außen. Die Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften, mit der ich seit 1938 als Mitglied und seit 1954 als Ehrenmitglied verbunden bin, verlangt von allen, die ihr angehören, für ihre Akten die Abfassung einer Autobiographie, über deren Umfang sie keine Vorschrift macht. Als ich jetzt nach wieder holter Mahnung endlich daran ging, der Verpflichtung nachzukommen, geriet mir das Schriftstück in die Breite, und so mag es schließlich in der Bücherei der Akademie, statt in ihrem Aktenschrank unterschlüpfen. Indem ich dieses Buch der ehrwürdigen Österreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften zueigne, möchte ich auch einen späten Dank dafür zum Ausdruck bringen, daß ich von ihr im Jahre 1921 mit der Verleihung des Liebenpreises meine erste wissenschaftliche Auszeichnung erhielt. Herrn Dr. FERDINAND SPRINGER danke ich für seine verleger ehe Bereitwilligkeit und für das schöne Gewand, das er diesem bescheidenen Versuch zugedacht hat. Brunnwinkl, am 4. Oktober 1956 KARL V.
