The Bee: A Natural History
Eyes with more than 6,000 separate lenses, bodies so hairy that they attract pollen by static, the ability to communicate by dancing. Bee stats are endlessly engrossing, and without the bees to pollinate them, most of our crops would be dead in the field. So how did this furry little workaholic come to be so crucial to the planet? This title answers that question and many more. Explores evolution, anatomy, society, behaviour and the human factor and a visual directory of 40 bee breeds.
