Since its release in 1999, Honey Bee Biology & Beekeeping has become a widely accepted textbook of apiculture. Universities use it to teach college students beekeeping and beekeepers use it to teach other beekeepers.
It concentrates on the ‘why’, ‘how’ and ‘when’ of beekeeping. It explains bee and beekeeping basics in a manner meaningful to people who lack an intensive background in biology. Yet it is not oversimplified, but provides a meaningful source of beekeeping information for the informed beekeeper.
Comprehensive, accessible, and now updated and illustrated with hundreds of colour photos and illustrations.
This edition revised by Dewey M. Caron with Lawrence John Connor.
