Abstract:

"My overall objective in organizing this book was to put the essence of "what" and "how" of bees and beekeeping into a single reference. This book is not intended to be a basic "how to do it" beekeeping cookbook or a detailed explanation of bee biology. I have concentrated on the "why" questions of bee biology, the biological basis of specific beekeeping activities. My intent is to explain bee and beekeeping basics in a manner meaningful to a person who lacks an extensive background in biology. At the same time I have not attempted to simplify bee biology to the point where it is meaningless to the serious beekeeper or biologist."-- p. vii
