Mating Biology of Honey Bees

“This is the definitive review by authors who have personally carried out much of the primary research on the topic.”
Norman Carreck, Science Director, International Bee Research Association, University of Sussex, East Sussex, United Kingdom

“… an authoritative treatise, built on decades of research of the authors on this subject…Personally, I very much appreciate this book as the authors put in con­text the most important recent as well as historical works on this topic, and they provide this information in a very clear and insightful manner.”
Klaus Hartfelder, Professor, University of Sao Paulo, Ribeirão Preto, Brazil

“… Once in a while one comes across a book on a complex topic, such as this one, in which the Koenigers have explained in simple readable language how honey bees actually do mate flying in the sky – a tour de force no doubt.”
Randall Hepburn, Professor, Department of Zoology and Entomology, Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa

“… this is clearly “a must have” for the book shelf of a bee researcher and a nice addition for anyone interested in honey bee biology.”
Dr. Peter Neumann, Professor, Institute of Bee Health, Vetsuisse

“A truly impressive synthesis on an enormous body of research on the reproduc­tive biology, and especially the mating behaviour, of honey bees. No other work describes so comprehensively, and with such excellent photographs and diagrams, the marvellous mating biology of honey bees.”
Thomas D. Seeley, Professor, Department of Neurobiology, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA

“… Here is a book that allows you to brush up on all the mind-bending details about honey bee mating biology … Bee sex is complex and beautiful and fortu­nately, there are still mysteries for future researchers to unravel.”
Marla Spivak, Professor, Department of Entomology, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, USA
