Dr. Snodgrass is one of the most highly respected entomologists in the country, and this work carries all the authority of its author's prestige. The book describes not only the adult structure of the bee, but also the embryonic development of the organ systems, the anatomy of the larva, and the pupal metamorphosis. Physiology is in general omitted, but special attention is given to the mechanisms of feeding, Hight, and egg laying. Notes on behavior are included whenever necessary to explain structure. The book is also thoroughly illustrated, many of the figures being the author's own clear and meticulous work.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"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 arthropods 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, and how it operates."

"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 bee behavior-beekeepers as well as scientists. The book is delightfully written and is enjoyable reading."
