Ants, bees, and wasps; a record of observations on the habits of the social Hymenoptera by John Lubbock( Book )

169 editions published between 1881 and 2012 in English and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contains the record of various experiments made with ants, bees, and wasps during the past ten years. Other occupations and many interruptions, political and professional, have prevented me from making them so full and complete as I had hoped. My parliamentary duties, in particular, have absorbed most of my time just at the season of year when these insects can be most profitably studied. I have, therefore, whenever it seemed necessary, carefully recorded the month during which the observations were made; for the instincts and behavior of ants, bees, and wasps are by no means the same throughout the year. My object has been not so much to describe the usual habits of these insects as to test their mental condition and powers of sense." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

On the senses, instincts, and intelligence of animals, with special reference to insects by John Lubbock( Book )

62 editions published between 1888 and 2011 in English and held by 362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the present volume I have collected together some of my recent observations on the senses and intelligence of animals, and especially of insects. While attempting to understand the manners and customs, habits and behaviour, of animals, as well as for the purpose of devising test experiments, I have found it necessary to make myself acquainted as far as possible with the mechanism of the senses, and the organs by means of which sensations are transmitted. I have accordingly attempted to give, very briefly, some idea of the organs of sense, commencing in each case with those of man himself"--Preface.
