“As a world authority on insect anatomy, Snodgrass has given us in this book a brilliant account of the anatomy of the honey bee and how it relates to the way that bees develop and how and why they function as they do in their interesting communal life. This book should be in the Library of every student of the honey bee and behaviour – beekeepers as well as scientists. The book is delightfully written and is enjoyable reading.” American Bee Journal”This is not just a technical reference book on honey bee anatomy. It is far more, it is essentially a treatise on entomology, using one species as an example, and including a discussion of the fundamentals of embryology, development, and metamorphosis as well as anatomy. The subject of each chapter is approached from the broadest evolutionary point of view, and its horizon includes all the anthropods and beyond, so that the bee really typifies animal life in general. Finally, the language of the book is such that it can be read straight through with pleasure .. It is a delight to follow the author through this complete examination of one insect: how it develops, how it grows, how it operates.” Entomological NewsAlso Available in Hardback
